Artist's Description

The Lizard point is at the tip of the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall and is the most Southern point on the UK mainland, there are many small villages nearby but Helston is the nearest town,some 11 miles North.

A lighthouse has guarded shipping from the treacherous Man O War Rocks and force of the Atlantic waves since 1751, in 1721 the Royal Anne Galley was wrecked on the rocks here and 15 of the crew were lost, prompting the building of the first lighthouse. They were buried in a mass grave at nearby Pistol Meadow.

Below the lighthouse is the now redundant old lifeboat station which has been replaced by a new one a few miles away.

I took this image in Midsummer when the pink seathrift flowers adorn the rugged coastline and even on a fine day like this, the awesome power of the Ocean is so evident.
