Porth Nanven - Porth Nanven in Cornwall is sometimes referred to as 'Dinosaur Egg Beach' because of a remarkable deposit of ovoid boulders covering the beach and foreshore. These boulders come in all sizes, from hen's egg to a metre or more in length, and have proved so tempting as souvenirs that they are now legally protected by the National Trust which owns the beach.
Many visitors assume that these weirdly shaped boulders are the work of the sea, which they are, but the sea of 120,000 years ago. Sea levels have changed several times since then and are now much lower than they were back then, causing the ancient beach to be suspended in the cliff high above the present level. Stand on the beach and look back towards the cliff, and you will see a wall of the rounded rocks waiting to break away and join those on the beach today.

Talk about sun lighting rocks. That is beautiful light and love the little highlights. Creates a ton of interest. I bet it was a glorious sunset. Interesting read as well. Cheers.

Oh wow! I've never seen a shot quite like this. The fog, and the wet rocks in the warm morning light... beautiful!
