It’s hard to see that cliffs are dangerous from the top of them. Seeing the Island from the sea gives a completely different perspective, where perilous paths over undermined cliff-tops and thinning caves make you step lightly when on land again.
It’s difficult sometimes to see the peril you’re in when you’re too close to it to have perspective.
Sometimes it’s possible to see the cliffs from the sides as the contours of the land take you out to sea. There, the different colours of the recently fallen rocks show just how much land the sea has eaten.
At the top of the cliffs near Noup Head are traces of land slips. I’d love to see the cliffs here close-up from the sea. For now I’ll just sit here and admire the scenery.
