Bleak House

By Arvorphoto    
This is a natural geological formation on Stowe's Hill, a rock outcrop of granite slabs formed by weathering. The name derives from the resemblance of the piled slabs to a "cheesewring", a press-like device that was once used to make cheese.
In the distance beyond the forestation of Smallacombe Downs is the highest peak of Cornwall, Brown Willy.

Processing: Lightroom/Photoshop
