A fox in St Ives, cornwall

Gary gets a closeup look at a Fox in St Ives

We get to see some great things along with the fabulous dawns and sunrises that we’ve intentionally set out to capture.

Saturday 12th June found me in the Island car park at St Ives at 4am. I was minding my own business getting my camera onto its tripod when I caught a glimpse of something moving amongst the cars. A fox popped out and stood looking at me for several seconds. Luckily I had my point and shoot camera in my pocket and pulled it out as quietly as I could, hoping to catch a quick shot before it disappeared. However, instead of running off, the fox decided to trot towards me! It came right up to me and had a quick look in the boot of my car before deciding I had no food and wandered off to the bins behind the café. Amazing!

Two things I learnt from this, remember to take pictures instead of just gawping as the fox looks in your boot, and keep fresh batteries in your camera, as it was all it could manage to take these two shots before dying.

And this was the dawn I enjoyed afterward Possibly the best I have experienced so far and, I hope, a wonderful momento for celebrating a wedding, birth or other unique occasion from this great day.
