Maritime heath
Maritime heath
According to the site designation by DEFRA, the Great Orme offers the finest example of limestone heath in the UK, and is consequently a designated special area of conservation. Dark areas in this image are western gorse. The other feature of this plateau is the large number of erratic boulders of Carboniferous Limestone, which are wonderfully weathered and densely grown with lichens, as seen in the foreground. The feature on the horizon is a bank of dense fog or low cloud which persisted all day, and made me think that we were doing exceedingly well with our second bright day after prolonged gloom.
