La Corbiere

La Corbiere Lighthouse is sited on Jersey’s South-west point. Built in 1874 it was the first Lighthouse in the British Isles to be built of concrete.

I went out one late afternoon to take in the view on what was a fairly calm day.

La Corbiere Lighthouse Jersey.
Causeway. The Lighthouse is situated on a Tidal Island which is linked via a causeway at low tide.
An alarm sounds to warn visitors to clear the causeway as the tide rises.
The cottage at the top of the slipway, was once occupied by the keeper of the lighthouse.



At the top of the headland is a range-finding tower that the German occupying forces built during the.
The tower has 7 floors, including the top floor, which was an originally the flat roof. The top floor is now enclosed with a new roof and glazing. It provides a 360° view out over Jersey’s south-west tip.

Once used as a radio tower, it is now used as holiday accommodation which people may rent out.
A calm day on the sea at Corbiere. The sea can be very rough at this point of the Island.
A large rock in the foreground is one of many around the area.

Plemont Bay.

Situated on the North West Coast of Jersey, Plemont Bay is a gorgeous.

Protected by high cliffs the crescent shaped bay offers golden sand, rock pools and ideal waters for swimming, surfing or just spending time to relax. I spent a couple of hours exploring the bay with my girlfriend on a gorgeous sunny day.

If you visit the island, the bay is well worth a visit, and don’t forget the café on the way back up.

The walk down to the bay is steep but, the view is fantastic, at the bottom of the short walk are a few steps which will take you down to the bay.

Once onto the beach, if it’s low tide then you will be greeted by golden sand to enjoy, there are rock pools and cave’s also, however be aware of possible rock fall by the caves and also be aware of the incoming tide.

Some of the amazing cliffs that protect the bay.
A close up of rock formation.

There are so many images to create while in the bay, this sand pattern caught my eye whilst walking along.

Around the bay you will find imposing rock formations.

As you come onto the beach at the right hand side of the steps you can walk around to some imposing caves. You can enter the cave part of the way but be careful as there are large stones and boulders that can be slippery after the tide has gone out.

A different part of the bay for exploring.

Walking up to and into the caves you are greeted by some amazing rocks and cliffs, there is also a waterfall!

A very narrow gap, not one I would advise on walking into, there is another way into the cave.

A beautiful site of mother nature at her best!

Some of the boulders in this part of the cave are huge! but amazing to look at and touch.

I took this photo from within the cave, looking towards the light from the bay outside. It was very quiet in there.

Perfect location for taking photos with your phone or camera.

I took the image below, at the end of our walk, most of the beach goers had headed home and there were just a few remaining on the beach.

Soon the tide would be in and the beach would take on a different view.

Mono Collection

It’s been a while since my last post, a lot has happened in my life since then. I am now back with a view to posting more often. I’m always inspired by a lot of the blogs that I see on here. So for this post I thought I would show some photos that I took last summer, the one that was, for Jersey at least very warm.

I have always had an interest in photography, and I hope you enjoy these few images, presented in mono.  As always, I love feedback. Enjoy!
