Good Evening everyone Smile

Are you sitting comfortably? Then let Chapter Five begin!!! Wink

So, there we were, heading off to Bottallack after my escapades at Porthcurno in the morning. I really was getting VERY cross with myself for my unbelievably strong self-preservation instincts, as I really wanted to overcome the fear of plunging to my death so I could get the shots I really wanted!

Guess what? I was faced with yet another death-defying route down to here!! Well impressed! (NOT!!!) Add that to the fact that Mr (Mountain Goat) Sutton had sprinted off in front, and I was just about ready to throw in the towel! Sad

So - after a temper tantrum and lots of self-pitying petulance, the Boss came to the rescue and not only returned to persuade me to venture over the "bridge", but he was also up for swapping lenses so I could get the image I wanted from the relative safety amongst the rocks Smile

We also spotted someone with loads more sense "up top" with a long lens - wish we'd met BEFORE I ventured down, Daryl, I might have just kept you company and had some time to chat, rather than just a wave in the car park! Grin

The light wasn't with us for too long, and the Lee Big Stopper 10 got a fair amount of use - hope you like this result. I know the Boss has uploaded a mono shot from here, but I'm a pretty colourful kinda gal - so it had to be a colour portraitscape© for me (might have a squarescape© version at some point in the future) Smile

Thanks for your time, have a good evening - just about got week 1 under my belt - won't be long till half-term! Tongue

Cheers!

Brave girl!
And worth it, I reckon!

Don't think I've got as low down the cliff as you did Smile

A lovely composition and deftly processed - wouldn't be surprised to find an award heading your way with this one, Fran!
The light in this is really exquisite.

Cheers

Thanks John & Bill Smile

I would certainly recommend it, John, great fun to be had! Smile

Funny thing was, Bill, I was fine once I got there, photography has a way to overcome most fears for me - think I'd even brave spiders! Wink

Cheers!

I know what you mean, Fran!
I always feel much steadier when photographing...although I'm not convinced about the spider part: they move! Wink

Superb shot Fran, contrast between the sharp rocks and soft sea works well, not to mention the warm light catching the rocks/buildings.
