This photograph was taken from the top of Carn Galva - one of the highest points in Penwith. On a clear day the Isles of Scilly and the twin peaks of Roughtor and Brown Willy on Bodmin Moor are visible from its summit. The Carn is accessible from the B3306 West Penwith coast road at Bosigran. This exhilarating stretch of winding road between St. Ives and Morvah is flanked on the one side by a succession of rugged carns and tors and on the other by a patchwork of lowland field systems and granite cliffs tumbling dramatically into the sea. It is a breathtakingly beautiful and unspoilt landscape dotted by the occasional hamlet or farmstead and one that has changed little over the centuries.
