Description St Michael's Mount (Cornish name: Carrack Looz en Cooz) is a lofty pyramidal tidal island, rising 400 yards (366 m) from the shore of Mount's Bay, situated in Penwith in west Cornwall, United Kingdom. It is united with Marazion by a natural causeway cast up by the sea and passable only at low tide.Here the tide has just come in and we spent a good couple of hours watching the many, many boats and crafts transport visitors to the island so they could visit The Mount, which is owned by the St. Aubyn family. All visitor access is controlled by the National Trust.Its Cornish language name literally, 'the grey rock in the wood' may represent a folk memory of a time before Mount's Bay was flooded.
Mark Wilson, West Bromwich Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement I am a keen amateur photographer and have been since my first real camera, a Pentax ME Super that I had for my 18th birthday. That was a few years, and many cameras ago, and I now own a Fujifilm S6500fd, which is a SLR-type digital camera.
I have a Pro account on Flickr, where many of my photographs have made it into their top 500 ‘interestingness’ pictures of the day.
I am married and have a 10 year old son who is also a keen photographer.
