The image of Cornwall is often one of golden beaches, blue skies and sunshine. At times though, the winter weather blows away more than just the cobwebs!
The photos today are of Portmellon and the narrow coastal road. Follow the road left up the hill and you will reach the popular village of Mevagissey.
Some days though the sea gets a little angry and splashes over the road. This isn't too pleasant if you happen to be going that way in your car - and worse still if you are walking.
I snapped these photos on a visit to see friends who live in Portmellon, I made sure I was a safe distance from the waves. You have to be sensible and respect such weather conditions.
It's perhaps hard to imagine that there is a sandy beach under all of those waves. In the summer there will be people enjoying the sunshine and launching small boats from the slipway.
