Taken at Hell's Mouth this morning.

Every spring the channel to the fishing cove is cleared of rocks that have been washed in there during the winter. And this is what it looks like at low water. I had to crouch right down, to get the sun behind the big boulder on the left, and filled my boots with cold water at the same time!

I think the cloud looks like a giant bird, hence the title! Hope you like it.

F22, 1/3 sec, Lens @ 14mm, ISO 100, ND grad, 6:39 am.

Please view...LARGE...if you can.

Many thanks for all your comment on my last upload.

Have a great weekend, Regards Tony

Another awesome image Tony. I especially like the cloud formation, it does look like a bird as you say and also the way the light falls on the rocks. Great photograph as always.
