Port Isaac From The Rocks by runique Port Isaac From The Rocks by runique
This view of Port Isaac is from the rocks beneath the headland to the south of the village. There is a lovely cliff top walk above here, but the scramble down to the rocks can be a bit tricky. The weather was unusual on this day as inland there were storms but on the Atlantic coast the sun was shining, hence the dramatic clouds bubbling up in the background.

You can also view a full panoroma shot from the same spot here.

Canon 20D + 17-40L

I love the motion of the water close up and the village on the distant hills. This is a very pleasing shot. Bravo to you for the climb in order to get a good photo!!

Thank you! Yes it was worth the climb I think. Would make a good location to shoot from in a storm, though from a bit higher up where you can't get swept off the rocks :)

It would be beautiful in a storm but rather risky.If you get a shot like that make sure to post it!

Hehe, and do you see me waving back .... or is it waving for help as I get swept off the rocks by a big wave (which nearly happened when taking these photos) :)

Yeah it's not easy. I'm trying to do a fantasy painting based on this particular scene, but capturing the power of the waves is proving hard to do.
