Thanks guys for all of the supportive feedback from this week’s posts - there was a lot of love for this little wander and I’m happy you agree that the sights were impressive. I’ll arrange another photodyssey soon!
So in typical movie fashion here’s an outtake which didn’t make the original cut. This was taken from the dunes overlooking the beach we’ve just explored so you can see most of the route along the estuary. It was also taken from the exact spot those frisky teenagers were hoping to bag before I disappointed them (if you haven’t followed the entire story then just hop back four posts and you’ll soon understand 😄)... Thanks again guys and keep smashing it - you’re awesome!

This weekend I have absolutely no plans, which I should be relishing as I have a pretty much non-stop month coming up, but I'm already feeling pretty restless and I'm wanting to get out of the flat. Does anyone else struggle to just 'stop' sometimes?
Serenity. A few peaceful evenings were spent sat on this fallen tree looking out over the water. At first trying to decide which bits were tree and which bits were merely reflection and then listening to the sound of the shore birds and the trickle of the water moving in and out of the estuary.
Cliffs Of Light
My first visit to Skye earlier in the year was an eye opener. I hadn't encountered such dramatic landscapes like this before, the long drive up was an experience in itself (my old sat nav taking me through the city centre of Glasgow!?) but there were moments peppered throughout the trip that just blew me away.
Neist Point was always going to be on the list and I visited on the last evening of my stay. One thing nobody told me about the Isle Of Skye is how bad the potholes are. The road to Neist Point was littered with them, I hit one so big I had to pull over, convinced I was going to see fuel or oil gushing out into the road.
Once setup on the extremely windy headland this majestic cliff face was impressive. The weather was unpredictable and changing fast. I lost count of the amount of times I had to put the camera away when it rained. A couple or rainbows later and the burst of light that I was treated to practically made the trip for me.
With enough cloud in the frame still to create a little atmosphere the cliffs bathed in the evening sun and all was well with the world.
I'm often asked if I get lonely when I go on my trips and what I can say is when the elements come together like this I feel a million miles away from loneliness. It really feels like the landscape is speaking to me, I've come to admire it's beauty and it is allowing me to see it, feel it. It feels very personal.
I know that might sound a bit daft!.. Anyway boo to the rain today and roll on a little Jurassic Coast adventure I've got planned for Monday morning, clocking off work's gonna feel real good.....

Cornwall has always been very special, there’s no doubt about that. In recent years its popularity has noticeably grown, some think that’s down to social media but its undeniable how much reach Poldark has had world wide. The beautiful Charlestown harbour captured here by @cornwall_maid being one of the many filming locations. This harbour is now set for huge investment by Sir Tim Smit the founder of Eden Project. This new investment will see the harbour transformed into a world class attraction and filming location bringing more visitors and much needed economic growth in the area year round. #walkingcornwall 👣
