Landscape

Old Harry Rocks on the Dorset coast. We had just been on an organised boat trip to see some sea birds, with puffins being the highlight. On our way back to the harbour it was getting late, with the sun setting and turning the sky that wonderful colour.

On route to Scotland for a break we stopped in The Lake District. We arrived late in the evening but it was still light so we ambled up Little Mell Fell which was overlooking our camp site. The views north towards Blencathra as the sun descended were fabulous.

We spent a week in Torridon, in Scotland and absolutely loved it. This image is looking across Upper Loch Torridon towards the mighty Beinn Alligin and Beinn Dearg.

A trip to Cornwall in February 2011 saw us visit one of our favourite coves – Lamorna. This shot was taken just a little way along the coastal path from the harbour. The sea really was this incredible colour and yes I just had to climb up that rock to touch the top!

On the same trip to Cornwall this image shows the lighthouse which if memory serves me right was off the north coast just above St. Ives, near the headland around the village of Gwithian. The wind was fairly strong adding to the fairly dramatic waves.

On a trip to Laugharne in South Wales we took a walk along the Pembrokshire Coastal Path, around the Stackpole area. The weather was fabulous and the scenery even more so. I tried my hand at a panoramic shot, stitching three images together in Photoshop.

A trip to the Lake District saw me tackle the infamous Sharp Edge. I remember being nervous on the walk-in, it turned out to be not as bad as I’d thought. It was in fact a small anti-climax after all that worry, and it was over to quick. I did do it in perfect conditions though: dry, cloudless and windless. Not somewhere I’d like to be in a storm.
