The Camel Estuary  - winding between sandy dunes on one side and grassy cliffs on the other, is a beautiful sight throughout the year, but especially so when the tide is in. The dunes are covered with masses of interesting flora, and on this sunny June day, there is an abundance of Red Valerian. Eyebright, Yellow-wort and Pyramid Orchids.

Sunset on The River Camel - The River Camel at Wadebridge is transformed daily with the changing tides and weather. Occasionally if the tide and time of year are right wonderful sunsets can be observed.

The Iron Bridge - near Padstow this bridge was constructed in 1898 and spans Little Petherick Creek. Finally closed to rail traffic on 30th January 1967, the bridge now forms part of the picturesque and very popular Camel Trail. In the foreground is the colourful Red Valerian  (Centranthus ruber) colloquially known as 'Padstow Pride', which grows in profusion over much of Cornwall, especially around the coastline where it favours steep banks, walls, cliffs and rocky places.

Mist on The Camel - Early morning mist drifts over The Camel Estuary where yachts lie peacefully at their moorings off Rock Beach. Rock, a very popular sailing centre on The River Camel, is located in a very sheltered position facing due south and opposite Padstow. At low tide, golden sands skirt the coastline from the St Enodoc Golf Course to Daymer Bay and Polzeath.
