The Lizard Point on the Lizard Peninsula is the most southerly part of the United Kingdom, It is a beautiful area for walking and enjoying fine coastal views. It can be very dangerous for seafarers in stormy conditions from a southerly direction as there are numerous semi submerged rocks in the area, and along the coast to the southern end of Falmouth Bay there is a large expanse of underwater rocks called The Mannacles and is the graveyard of many ships over the centuries. The Lizard area is also famous for a scarce mineral called Serpentine which when cut and polished and have various local artifacts mounted on it is sold in the tourist shops.
The images tonight were taken last Sunday on my trip to the Lizard to see the Choughs, which is featured on the cornish emblem.
