The beautiful town of St Ives, Cornwall, England is the destination for our photo of the week this time. Cornwall is a county on England’s southwestern tip. It forms a peninsula encompassing wild moorland and sandy beaches, striking cliffs and mysterious coves. Once upon a time, this area was a pirates paradise. There are still those who believe treasures are hidden in coves along the coast.

Our photo of the week is from the tranquil and picturesque town of St Ives. The heart of this small town is the stunning St Ives Harbour. Catch it at just the right time where the golden light illuminates the background and the striking colourful boats will keep you snapping away well into the night.
