#FarAwayClay: Landscapes in Lockdown

Would you like to be part of our newest outdoor photography exhibition?

Following the success of our #CelebrateClayCountry exhibition in 2020, we are asking our local communities to send in any pictures they take on their local walks but with one condition…we have to be able to see Clay Country in the background!

The sky tips of the china clay industry can be seen for miles and it is our goal to see who can take the picture the furthest away, celebrating the unique industrial landscapes of mid-Cornwall. Just how far away is the clay?

Spring is almost here! The gorse is flowering, the primroses and daffodils are starting to make an appearance and the days are getting longer. We encourage our community to enjoy their local walks and have fun with photography!

You can submit your pictures to [email protected] or in the comment sections on our Facebook posts. You can also post to Instagram and Twitter using the #FarAwayClay hashtag.

We will be displaying a selection of these images amongst our outdoor site (with full credit and permission) so please make sure that your image is the best quality version and is at least 1mb in size.

Here are some of the entries we have received so far...
