EDITORS COMMENTS
Bask in the tranquil beauty of St Mawes Harbour, Cornwall, as captured by the lens of John Gay in this evocative photograph. Taken from a viewpoint overlooking Summers Beach, the image invites us to imagine the gentle lapping of the waves against the shoreline. Small sailboats dot the calm waters, their sails taut against the breeze, adding a sense of serenity to the scene. In the distance, the silhouettes of St Mawes Castle and Pendennis Point and Castle rise majestically against the horizon. These historic fortifications, once guarding against invading forces, now stand as enduring symbols of Cornwall's rich maritime history. The photograph, taken between the 1950s and 1960s, transports us back in time to an era of simpler pleasures. The peaceful harbour, with its picturesque boats and unspoiled natural beauty, offers a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. John Gay's expert use of light and composition in this image captures the essence of St Mawes Harbour, making it a must-see for anyone with a love for the sea, history, or the simple pleasures of life by the water's edge.
