Beautiful seascape! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you Simone. It is one of the seven natural wonders of Britain. I had alreday took a lot of photos of the Needles, and as I was heading back up the cliff I spotted the speedboat and really liked the way it swept an arc on the waters.

Great composition. The one and only time I visited Alum Bay, we walked down to the beach and went back up on a chair lift which faced the cliff instead of the view.
