Kynance Cove - violent waves and currents
Kynance Cove - violent waves and currents
This telephoto view from the beach at Kynance Cove at low tide shows the waves coming into the cove at two angles. Firstly the wave comes straight in towards the rocks, then the wave bounces of those rocks to approach the beach from a totally different angle. No wonder there are signs warning of the danger of the treacherous currents in the sea.
