The only hassle I find in shooting the coastline around Cornwall is the 'red eye' transatlantic flights that constantly fly in and out during the dawns and sunsets. When the air is very humid high up, the Vapour trails left by jets (that usually dissipate behind the plane) condense this water and turn it to ice, making a Contrail grow. In certain conditions they last for hours creating a long, straight, abnormal crease across the sky that I usually shun. Yet on this evening, when shooting a sundown on Pentire Point East, a heavy contrail began to evolve, soften and glow in the light of the setting sun, to complement and balance a graphic composition.
