Coastal scenery south of Land's End
Coastal scenery south of Land's End
This view is from the coastal footpath at Carn Cheer, above the chasm of Zawn Wells (the fence silhouetted in the foreground is to keep people away from the cliff edge). The island with the rock arch is called Enys Dodman (literally "The Isle with the hole"), and once a rock arch connected it to the mainland. Beyond that are the Armed Knight rocks. Further out in the Atlantic, towards the left of the photo, is the Longships lighthouse. This view is fairly common on Land's End postcards etc., and has the added aesthetic benefit of catching the setting sun across the sea.
