Hang-glider near Black Cliffs, Hayle
Hang-glider near Black Cliffs, Hayle
The wind off the sea, blowing across the Black Cliffs generates a considerable uplift. As we stopped for lunch, this hang glider appeared to take advantage of the uplift, and managed to maintain this position for around half an hour. The plants in the lower right are the heads of Ribwort Plantain growing on the clifftop.
