I like the way the criss cross folds of land and the GU lead the eye to the muted colours of the rocky outcrop and sea beyond, like it loads.
Just one niggle...... needs a couple of degrees acr to level off the horizon

Thanks George well spotted, a question; I have seen the term "GU" used for Joe public in a shot but what do's "GU" mean ? sorry to show my ignorance

Ahhhh well blame Alan for this, it means The GREAT UNWASHED

Just looked it up, used by "Edward Bulwer-Lytton" in 1830 in his novel Paul Clifford. Agree it a good term for all the GU that get in my way (that's when taking a photo).

Well balanced composition. If you scroll it up to the top of your monitor you will see that it would also stand up with the top chopped off to the horizon. Gives you another option.

well, I've learnt something; I never knew where the term originated from but it just seemed to suit the mass of humanity This is a glorious area and you can teell how popular it is with the number of GUs wandering about. The haze of the high pressure is visible but little you can do about that. Did you get a chance to go back later in the evening?

It was only a day visit, but I think after the school holiday's are over and all the GU's are gone I think a second visit will be in order

I quite like how Frank has mentioned about the shot by scrolling it up to crop the sky so that it just concentrates on the different paths to the sea & showing the different tones on the land & the rocks which are in the distance of which I am sure I can see some people walking up them. Well taken.
