That's a fine view of the amazing rock formations at Hartland Quay. I remember looking at the savage stone 'teeth' running out to sea at Hartland, and thinking of sailors who might have been drifting onto them in an onshore gale. Even in sunny weather they seem threatening.

Great stretch of coast.
Best wishes,

It was a 'Photo finish' of course (sorry)

Many thanks for all the comments.

This is one place I just have to visit whenever we are in North Devon and one of those place where bad weather makes for even better shots !
On this occasion it was a nice day so the 'horses' were more like ponies - but when the wind gets up.......WOW.

Thanks again
