Rocks, moorland and sea; Valley of the Rocks, Lynton, Devon, UK
Description: At Lynton/Lynmouth on the North Devon coast, the high land of Exmoor meets the sea and plunges vertically into it. On the very edge of the moor here lies the beautiful Valley of the Rocks, a unique coastal feature; how exactly it was formed remains a matter of debate amongst geologists. The whole area is very photogenic and colourful. This shot was taken from the slopes of Castle Rock looking eastwards to Ragged Jack. The path leads around onto the stunning North Walk, cut into the cliff in 1817, and perched high above the sea. Beyond the Bristol Channel the coast of South Wales is just visible.
