Snow on Lanyon Quoit

Snow on Lanyon Quoit


It’s supposed to be getting cold over the next day or 2 so I thought I’d dig out a photo of when it was really cold a few years back. Whilst it might look like a light sprinkling of snow to some of you this is West Cornwall where it snows about as often as in Jamaica. Well, OK maybe a little more, but not very often.

I had a fantastic time this day. Whilst the whole of Cornwall was paralysed I took the opportunity to jump in the car and take some photos. I was driving up lanes where the snow was fresh. It was amazing just being able to park the car in the middle of the road and get out!

Anyway, this is Lanyon Quoit near Penzance. It’s one of the region’s best known megalithic sites and is highly photogenic. In the background is the engine house at Bosilicack – I’m sure there’s some juxtaposition of ancient and, erm, quite old going on here…
