The Ridge

By BillyGoatGruff  
Spent a very pleasant afternoon picnicking and watching these climbers do very strenuous things in very risky places.

This is Commando Ridge in Cornwall where, during WW II, the Royal Marine Commandos trained before going off to do similarly brave things overseas, and was featured not so long ago in a couple of TV shows.

Tha backlight and sawtooth shape of the rocks with the climbers presented me with a ready-made silhouette: just had to wait for the " moment".
Some colour and contrast tweaks to help the rocks, and a final crop for composition.
A simple graphic image, imo. It works for me! Hope it does for you.

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks also to the climbers for being there.
