Red Cliffs of Devon

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Red Cliffs of Devon
Red Cliffs of Devon
For the 101 'Red' theme ~ Sidmouth, Devon .. added a light selective sunset filter to enhance the colours as the bright sun washed them out a bit ~ the little girl just happened to step into view as I was about to take the picture :)

Many thanks John ~ lol on the white cliffs of dover as I was thinking along the same lines for a title... this red sandstone is probably just as crumbly and there has been a few landslips along the coastline!

I agree with everyone else...the "accident" of the little girl stepping into your image AND having on a red coat was perfection. This is an AWESOME image most worthy of framing!
HTD!

Hey, Susie, don't you just love it when such a wonderful subject, and in red no less, happens into your camera's view? It's a delightful shot.

Hi Susie! Well thank you for setting me off on another nostalgia trip! These same red cliffs just a few miles further west along the coast would have me standing with my head out of the train window getting my first smell of wonderful sea air. Those same red sandstone cliffs at Dawlish, the sea, right beside the tracks perhaps more often more grey than blue but it meant I was going home to Cornwall from college in London. Wonderful memories of the steam locomotives that hauled the trains (Hey, we are talking 1955 here!) and what did it matter that one got the occasional bit of soot in the eyes as the train wended its way through all the little tunnels in those red cliffs -I was less than a hundred miles from home.
Thank you so much Susie for giving both photographic and geographic information, it adds so much more to your images when we are told how and where.
Best regards, Pete

Thanks Peter ~ glad I can set you off on another nostalgia trip .. especially about the train .. when I lived in St Ives I loved taking the train ~ non-stop to Exeter then stopping at every little station getting me closer to my destination ~ and the sea! Memories!!
