Taken at Clovelly, North Devon UK in between two rainy windy weather fronts. The wind had dropped, and the sky cleared. Hope you like it! August 2008.

I enjoy taking photos, and writing. I live at the southern tip of the foothills of the Peak District (think Derby, central England). I had a Nikon D80 with various lenses (now a Sony NEX5N, a dog who tries hard to get into every photo and two lovely daughters :)

    Very nice shot Mark, and very well framed. I really like the wide angle on this and the shot is divided perfectly into thirds, each with its own amount of varying detail. I love how you feel so close and low to the rocks, but then the clouds really pull you in… way in!
    Superb horizon line by the way!

  • I just realised I hadn’t replied on this one.. Thanks very much for commenting. I was unsure as to whether to post it, and the lack of comments probably bears that out. But still – thanks again.

  • Thanks Richard – as per my comment above to Paul’s comment why did you pick this one out?

    Hi Mark.
    Although living in Devon, what I like about this is the simplicity of it..
    And it could also be anywhere, but goes to show, that on a good day, you cant beat the beauty of your own country.

  • Too true.. I should probably apply that more to where I live.. Derbyshire!!

    I live not so far from clovelly lucky you found a sunny day in august – great shot. Neil

  • Thanks! It was really sheltered here.. we stayed for a week in Ilfracombe, and the weather was awful, with a full blown south westerly all week. This was a rare break in the clouds!
