Storm Ellen Hits Porthleven, August 2020

0  comments

Storm Ellen hit Porthleven (one of the best places to storm watch in Cornwall) so I drove down there to film and photograph the action.

Where is Porthleven?

Looking back towards the Porthleven harbour. The sea is deceptively calm but the wind was blowing a gale.

Masses of sea foam gathering at the harbour entrance.

One of the gun barrels salvaged from HMS Anson points out towards the sea to protect Porthleven from marauders.

Nothing like the enormous waves I have seen at Porthleven in the past but still a demonstration of the storms raw power.

The safety of the harbour.

You'd be amazed at how many people still ignore these very clear warnings to get a selfie.
