A year on from the original set of Salcombe estuary photos I took, I made a return visit to stay with my good friends, who live in this delightful, small, south Devon town. The Salcombe estuary and surrounding countryside is a photographer’s dream and draws thousands of visitors and toursists to the area each year. The clear blue water’s of the Salcombe estuary are a haven for those who enjoy sailing and messing around in boats! The countryside is spectacular and vivid too, being both very green and undulating.
The weather was quite extraordinary for early December – in fact it was akin to a warm early spring day and the sun shone hour after hour lighting up the Salcombe estuary and town in mid winter. This presented some wonderful photo opportunities in and around the estuary and town, allowing me to take advantage of the lovely effects created by the low December sun.
