Penzance is a town, civil parish and port in Cornwall, England, which derives its name from the Cornish "Penn Sans", meaning Holy Headland. It is the most westerly major town in Cornwall and is about 64 miles/103 km from Plymouth and 255 miles/410 km southwest of London. Penzance has a population of about 21,200.

Penzance was the base location during our group's photo tour of the Cornwall coasts. We ventured out from the town before dawn every day, staying out for the entire day, to capture some (hopefully) interesting images. Penzance itself was not on the tour's agenda but during my week there I managed to capture quite a few images of this rugged, picturesque little town. By the way, they do milk the "Pirates of Penzance" thing there for all it's worth, but it somehow works.
