    these are perhaps two of a few possible shots that can be taken of this theatre unless you have an ultra wide angle lense or a helicopter,(i don't have either) this is the minack theatre in porthcurno in cornwall, it was built in the 1930s, it intentionally resembles an old roman amphitheatre, and has the ocean as it's backdrop,and regularly holds drama productions to a packed house, a truly beautiful place, well worth a visit.

    No that's ok! now then where do i start, i suppose anywhere in cornwall it's all beautiful to me, the lizard point, st ives, land's end, and there is a fantastic little cove called "cadgwith cove" it's breathtaking and has lots of thatched cottages, but other than that i will travel anywhere for beautiful scenery,thanks for the interest alex.

    no worries! i lived in cornwall for about 14 years, i loved every minute of it, i used to live near St.Ives, i miss it greatly - its my home and i will one-day move back there, its my favorite place.

    I miss the sea air, i miss feeling like my lungs are healthy, i miss the community of cornwall, i miss the 'old folk' saying "my han'some". i miss hayle beach (3 miles long and beautiful) i miss penzance prom, i miss swimming from hayle beach to st ives beach, but most i miss the pasties

    :)
