The South West Coast Path is largely just a series of ups and downs. So many in fact that once you have completed the 630 miles of path you could have scaled Mount Everest four times! The path is often described as strenuous with certain sections featuring repetitive ups and downs.
Any height that is painfully gained as you walk the SWCP is often immediately lost as you descend straight back to almost sea level. During one stretch to Port Isaac that the guide book described as ‘arduous’ we had climbed three hills each time dropping back down to sea level, all within half an hour and over a distance of less than a mile.
This series is a documentation of those incredible views over valleys and hills before making those strenuous ascents that the path is notorious for.
A Series of Ups and Downs is a continuation of my attempt to walk the Coast Path and photograph my journey.
