The wild Cornish coastline

...and while I'm at it, here is the view out to the other side from half-way up the steep track that leads to ruins of the (very old) pre-Viking settlements, and the (later) Tintagel ruin that features in my previous shot.
It was a magical day, weather-wise...quite a climb up a very well-worn track.
The huge swell that wrecked itself on these rocks would have fairly successfully eliminated any threat from the sea to the Cornish earls who called Tintagel home.
As a major King Arthur fan in my youth, this particular visit had all sorts of bells ringing.


  1. I wonder if they had photos of Harry Quick dumping bodies here...

  2. well....they certainly had SOMETHING didnt was a very "Quick" backdown.
