Tintagel



A day around Tintagel, wizard not included. Dark age and medieval walls slowly crumble into the sea. Tourists amble among the grassy slopes and ruins, pausing to catch their breaths on stairs that wind themselves around the miniature island. The tide thunders below against the slate. This was once a natural harbour, though only seals come ashore now.

    Very moody, atmospheric pictures, Mark.

    Many thanks, Paul. I was helped by the landscape somewhat!

    It is an awe-inspiring place.

    Absolutely. Makes you really wonder how people could have constructed houses and lived out their lives on that rock.
