Land’s End, Cornwall, UK May 2007
These are the dramatic cliff faces of Land’s End on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean with the first and last hotel/cafe/parking lot/toilets of England in the distance.
The amazing formations remaining from the crumbling cliff faces are spectacular and I am really amazed at why they look the way they do. I can almost see the erosion happen before my eyes and yet there are these defiant structures which refuse to succumb to the forces of nature and time.
In the distance in the left of the picture you can just make out a phallic looking structure which is some sort of lighthouse-like perched atop a smaller bed of rocks to both mark the beginning of the landmass proper and to warn unsuspecting seamen of the other, less visible danger immediately ahead, as if to say that sometimes you can be too fixated on the future but you may not make it that far as you will trip over something which is immediately before you.
