Afternoon all,

This is my first offering from my trip to the Scilly Isles (got back last night). The weather could have been better, but I still managed to get around 400 shots, so there will be more of these to come!

For those of you who don’t know, the Isles of Scilly are situated 28 miles of Lands End, and are the most South Westerly point of the UK.

This was taken at Peninnis Head on the Island of St Mary’s, which is famous for its incredible rock formations.

Thanks for all the votes and comments while I was away, very much appreciated!

Oh, and by the way, it was nice to come back to see one of my images gracing the front of “Practical Photography” (sorry, had to mention it!) Smile

PHEW! At least ONE portfolio I don't have to play catch-up on! Wink

Your ears may well have been burning during the week, as I actually found myself on several beaches with rocks and crashing waves, so the words "a la Paul Morgan?" were heard a few times in Northumberland! Grin

Well Done on the Front Cover too Smile

I know what you mean Kestutis, but to get the Lighthouse central, without digital manipulation, would have meant me standing in the ocean - so I settled for a quirky off centre look

I think you may well have webbed feet my friend, always in or about the stuff, mostly salty.
I've been buying that magazine for years and years and didn't get this issue, but I will tomorrow, I see from the thumb of the cover that it's not water related just to prove me wrong.
This as ever is excellent my friend.
