OV0000 : Oh, that I had the wings of a dOVe!

taken 7 years ago, near to Staintondale, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Oh, that I had the wings of a dOVe!
Oh, that I had the wings of a dOVe!
After following Peter Standing's excellent directions OV0000 : Below Beast Cliff but stepping onto the slippery boulders three quarters of a mile to the north on a slippery January day rather than during the summer, I decided (wrongly) to take the more direct route to OV000000 along the lower cliffs instead. This shot, tantalizingly just outside the elusive gridsquare shows how close I was and how hard it would have been to get back up without sprouting wings! Just look at these curved overhangs in the soft cliff face. The erosion here is quite evident as my GPS map indicated I was much further away from the cliff edge instead of being perilously close. Hats off to Peter and partner NZ9900 : En route to OV 0000 (2) for reaching what must be one of the top gridsquares to add to ones Geograph collection.
