Sunset at Bat's Head
Sunset at Bat's Head, taken 21 years ago
The chalk headland is supposed to look like the head of a bat, and a cave piecing the headland looks like an eye. It is said that twice a year the setting sun shines through the cave, making the eye bright red. This is the best I could do. Photo taken at 1730 GMT from Pulpit Rock.
