Theatre of the Sea - Steve Tuck

We now have over 35,000 photographs in our collection, that’s a lot of pictures of the dawn. We go out in all conditions from stunning sunrises to dramatic stormy mornings that take our breath away.

We have decided to create a collection of our favourite photographs from each month and have asked our followers on Facebook to name them. This is our chosen January picture and it was named “Theatre of the sea”  by Steve Tuck and is very apt.

Anyone born on this day would have a very dramatic picture on their wall taken on the day they were born the perfect newborn gift. At the end of the year we will be creating a calendar with a picture for each month that hopefully will reflect the seasonal changes.

Join us on Facebook to get the chance to name one of our beautiful photographs.

Beautiful fine art landscape photography....everyday

Since June 2005 we have been going out every single day at sunrise in all weather conditions to take beautiful fine art landscape photographs. I have stood in the middle of a beach in the pouring rain and still managed to find something beautiful to photograph.

Even when it's raining there is beauty to be found.

At mid summer I have to be at my chosen location by 3.30am to make sure I capture the pre dawn. There is something quite magical when you realise that you are one of the very few people crazy enough to be awake at that time and to witness mother nature at it’s most impressive.

Mother nature at it's best

There is something very spiritual in waiting for the sun to rise and for capturing the process as a photograph knowing that this is the start of someones first day on earth or the first day of the rest of their lives.

A wonderful reminder of a special day

A short film about us

Location Location Location

Being based on the south west coast of England, we get treated to all the weird and wonderful types of weather that makes this country famous.  This makes each morning different from the last and it keeps us here at The Day That on our toes, and we have to be ready for whatever the weather may throw at us.

We as The Day That photographers have many different indicators that can tell us which is the best location to head to before dawn, and what locations can give us the results we need to provide images that you would want hanging above a fire place or in a child’s bedroom, bought as a christening gift.

The perfect Christening gift for the nursery

As we go out every morning our knowledge of what the weather is doing is just as good as any news report. Conversations in the office will often be about what spots are currently working, if the tide is coming in or out, and what the wind direction is.

The Perfect Shot

The Perfect Photograph

However when we get up in the morning, and the sky is dark, we still cannot be certain what location we are going to end up at.

I live in Hayle, which is about a 15 minute drive from St. Ives, a town that has many small beaches that offer different things and is a place we go to a lot. On my drive over to St.Ives I keep an eye on the sky, judge the cloud movement and get a feel for the weather, and this is when I make a decision on what location to travel to.

If the sky is clear, we head to a location that points toward the sun so we can see it appear over the horizon. Simple. However being in England, the weather does not always allow that, and we have to head off to other locations to capture something that creates a great image and will tell a story of what that morning was like.

Beaches such as Porthgwidden or the back of The Island has some great rock formations, with a long exposure and a bit of a swell, we are able to capture some great movement around the rocks.

The back of the Island, St Ives

Carbis Bay, although close by, can offer something entirely different. The beach is tucked in and almost hidden away from the shoreline. The water sweeps around the corner from St Ives and is pushed forwards, giving us perfectly shaped slow moving waves for us to capture.

Time of year also plays a huge factor, anyone who has lived in the same place for a long period of time will know just how much the Earth’s tilt affects where the sun actually rises, given which of the four seasons we are in. A clear dawn in the summer will be completely different to a clear dawn in the winter, and we have to change our approach accordingly.

The Atlantic Blanket Company

The Atlantic Blanket Company was started by the lovely Jo Riley in 2007 after she searched for the perfect blanket for her daughter who had chicken pox. Jo searched in vain and decided if she couldn’t find the blanket she was looking for then neither could anyone else and so The Atlantic Blanket Company was born. They offer the most beautiful luxurious blankets and throws blending contemporary design and colour with traditional weaving methods and natural fabrics.

Jo says “I don’t think I could have started this company anywhere but Cornwall. It is such an inspiring place to live and we are surrounded by creative and innovative people doing great things. That really gave me the confidence to have a go, and it certainly made finding local talent easy when it came to designing and building the website etc. Now our client base stretches all over the world and customers come back to us time and again to share their blanket stories. We sell baby blankets all year round, picnic blankets for the summer and gorgeous throws and blankets for all seasons, plus exclusive gifts and accessories. We also work with hotels and interior designers on bespoke projects, and are lucky enough to be able to do all that and walk the dog on the beach every day too!”

Beautiful luxurious Baby blankets

We think the Atlantic Blanket Website looks fantastic and sums up Jo’s attitude to her company and brand. To see her lovely blankets go to their website. Jo is also offering all our readers 15% discount Use TDT15

The Camerons on Holiday in Cornwall

David Cameron has baby in Cornwall

David Cameron is taking home a surprise souvenir from his holiday in Cornwall as his wife, Samantha was rushed into hospital yesterday and gave birth to a little baby girl. A good friend of mine also gave birth yesterday to a little baby boy at the same hospital, imagine that. I still don’t know if their paths crossed even so what a claim to fame.

I wonder what birth gifts the little Cameron will get? All the usual stuff no doubt? A news paper on the day she was born, oh look Daddy’s on the front cover!

One thing I am sure of is that my friends little boy will get one of our lovely photographs taken as the sun is rising into the Cornish sky.

Do you think if I sent one to David Cameron at number 10 he will receive it?

" St Ives"

A beautiful photograph of St Ives Cornwall

In the recent Coast Magazine awards, St Ives won 2 out of the 10 awards going.

St Ives itself won Best Family Holiday Destination voted for by the readers. We’re not surprised that St Ives is a hit with readers,’ says deputy editor and Coast Awards organiser Alex Reece. ‘For a small town, it offers such variety – from bucket-and-spade beaches to high culture.’

What he also could have mentioned was the astonishing light that St Ives and the surrounding beaches offer.

One beach that we go to take our stunning personalised newborn pictures is The Porthminster Café beach which also won an award for best Coastal Café. I have eaten here regularly and the food is fantastic with amazing views. I have photographed in front of the café on many occasions, it’s a great spot. Here are a few examples…. See what I mean
