Creating a golden rush hour at sunset each day, photographers, Instagrammers and TikTok-ers have been lining up to get their perfect shots
Remote fields on the north coast of Cornwall have become a popular sightseeing destination in the last week, as word has spread about a spectacle worthy of a picture. Creating a golden rush hour at sunset each day, photographers, Instagrammers and TikTok-ers have been lining up to get their perfect shots.
Despite its access to stunning beaches, the rugged car park at the end of a winding lane in the hamlet of West Pentire near Newquay should normally be quiet at this time of year. However, every June it starts filling up, especially as it draws towards the end of the day, and if the weather is fine.
Even when it is overcast and stormy, people will hurry along a track to the nearby fields in the hope that the sun might pierce through the clouds before it sets, lighting up the blanket of deep red and creating a postcard perfect photo opportunity.
For just a few weeks every year, photographers will travel from miles around to try and capture the poppies of West Pentire in all their glory, and right now, they are in full bloom.
