A year in pictures along the South West Coast Path

The beauty of the South West Coast Path is revealed in the new 2014 calendar which goes on sale this month – making it the ideal Christmas gift for anyone with a passion for walking and the Great Outdoors. From the azure sweep of Holywell Bay in Cornwall and the picture-postcard cobbled streets of Clovelly in Devon, to the famous Durdle Door in Dorset and picturesque Porlock Weir in Somerset the 12 photographs were chosen from the shortlist of entries in the annual photography competition.

The front cover features the overall winner of the competition, a stunning photograph of Start Bay with ewes grazing in a snow-covered foreground, which was chosen by our judge of the 2012 competition Adam Burton who said of this image;

"This was an absolute standout favourite for me by a country mile. It has everything: a great view, beautiful subject matter and conditions, strong composition and wonderful rich light.”

If the pictures featured in the calendar inspire you to get out on the Coast Path to experience this breathtaking coastline for yourself, don’t forget to take your camera with you and enter this year’s competition. There are great prizes to be won, including a holiday with Cornish Cottage Holidays, and you may even see one of your photographs in the 2015 calendar.
