Hanover Cove Top Down ~ Photograph
The Story: Hanover Cove is a dramatic coastal landscape, marking the boundary between Perranzabuloe and St. Agnes parishes. It is named after the Hanover, which was wrecked here in 1763. Carrying gold bullion, and en route to Falmouth from Lisbon, it was blown onto the rocks by a gale: only 3 of the 67 aboard survived.
A combination of mine working and natural erosion have created the most spectacular landscape, only visible from the air. To try to capture this I pointed the camera straight down and took nine separate photographs, which were then joined together to create this image.
I love the perspective of this picture. It almost gives you a sense of 'falling' when you look at it.
