Rocky headlands falling from the heights of Fort Hillsborough catch the sun across Rapparee Cove, close to Ilfracombe Harbour.

There is something uniquely different about the west coast that sets it apart from any other coastal region. You have captured it superbly here.

Thanks keepclicking, Nickolay and loutus_ou, your kind comments are much appreciated.

This cove is infamous as the site of the wreck of a ship called The London in October 1796 with a cargo of gold and prisoners of war or slaves from St.Lucia (controversial).

Best regards
