The Looe Daily Photo – Days 11, 12 and 13

The Looe Daily Photo Day 11, 12 and 13Okay, I know, I know. I did say I’d post every day but hey – the weekend is proving difficult so I’ve decided that weekend photos of Looe will be posted on Monday afterwards. If I ever go on holiday well I’ll just have to figure that out when it comes to it.

So I have three photographs of Looe for you today.

The first is seagulls on Looe Beach in the morning sunshine.

Second up is a picture I took in the summer looking down Looe River towards Looe Bridge.

Last of all is a rather apocalyptic photo of an old ‘NO SWIMMING’ Safety Notice in West Looe.

The Looe Daily Photo – Days 11, 12 and 13

Seagulls resting on East Looe Beach

I took this photo of seagulls resting on East Looe Beach early in the morning. What struck me the most was the beautiful golden glow of the sand and how clean and fresh the surf looked. It was a picture of Looe Beach at it’s tranquil best.

Looe River – Summer 2010

I took this photo mid-summer last year. The tide is well on the way out and you can tell the time of year due to the amount of weed hanging off the mooring ropes. The weed grows on the Looe riverbed in early spring and lasts throughout most of the summer.

Apocalyptic “NO SWIMMING” sign in West Looe

I took and played around with this photo as the sign seemed rather incongruous at the time.

It was a beautiful sunny morning and the water in the Looe River was crystal clear, just like the Med! When the water’s like this, I feel like jumping in and going for a swim. I never do though as it’s downright freezing but the thought and desire are definitely there.

Needless to say, swimming in Looe River can be very dangerous, particularly when the tide is rushing in or out or boats are coming and going.
