On the rugged coast of Cornwall

My visit there with Jernni And Bob, we enjoyed the beauty of here so much
and went back for a second visit on this windy day.. climbing down was rather dangerous
but Bob and I did as we wanted this shot!! I have tried to find this mine for over 10 years!!
we must have visited 90% of all the mines and stones while there...perfect holiday

V2 another view of just the one...remember hand held and I am not a landscape photographer
but will give anything a try!
Last evening no electricity again! so off to bed so early

Not a landscape photographer, Lillian??? Well, you are now.
A very well composed image of these old tin mine buildings on the cliffs, ands of the two versions, V 1 appeals the more to me.

Two lovely images. You have to wonder at how difficult it must have been to build on such rugged rock and how they got the materials down.

For someone who's not a landscape photographer you've got two really cracking images here, Lillian. Handheld too.

And very brave of you to do the climb down! Goodness...
