SS2224 : Sunset at Hartland Quay

taken 13 years ago, near to Stoke, Devon, Great Britain

Sunset at Hartland Quay
Sunset at Hartland Quay
This is a view of the sun setting over the North Atlantic Ocean, at Hartland Quay in Devon. This stretch of the British coastline has been the cause of a number of shipwrecks over the centuries -- the nearby Wreckers' Retreat bar has a map showing the location of tens of sunk ships, including some sizeable Royal Navy vessels. To see the same view for yourself, wander towards the waterside from the bar, veering left onto a small promontory that overlooks these dramatic rocks.
