On the Lizard

Although these photos were taken a week ago, I thought they would be nice to feature on the longest day of the year for all of us in the northern hemisphere. The Lizard peninsula is a very special region of mainland Britain with diverse flora and fauna and as you can see from these images, a very beautiful place too.

    More of those beautiful blues in the sea, Jude. Wonderful stuff.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      Just couldn’t resist a few more shots of that lovely water today Pete.

        Small wonder! 🙂

  2. Sue says:

    I have fond memories of the area around the Logan Rock – near there??

    1. Heyjude says:

      Logan Rock is near to Land’s End. So to answer your question, “Not within walking distance!”

      1. Sue says:

        ….and certainly not in mine!!

    Happy Solstice!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Been a beautiful day, though very windy!

  4. Dina says:

    Beautiful impressions, Jude.
    Happy Solstice to you all!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Dina, the sun is shining today but very, very windy! Should be a good week ahead though 🙂

        We went to Morston to pick Samphire yesterday morning. Two 🚌 🚌 with schoolchildren were waiting for the tide to go on a seal trip to Blakeney Point. I felt really sorry for the kids, it was very very windy! It was for sure going to be a wet turn at the point 🌊💨🌊 the Samphire is quite juicy and nice now. Can you get them on your coast?

        1. Heyjude says:

          Sea, boat + wind are never a good combination for me!! No Samphire here as far as I know, it likes the salty brackish water of the marshes or river estuaries.

  5. Wow! These are fabulous pictures for the summer solstice, Jude. They make me want to hop on a plane and fly right to the Lizard peninsula. 🙂

    I will be happy to link them to my next photography post on July 5. Thanks for this. 🙂

      I am sure you have this colour water much closer to you Cathy 😀 Enjoy your trip to Niagara – I imagine it will be quite busy there at this time of year.

      1. Maybe we have this color water in the Caribbean islands, and maybe in Florida (which I hate!). But certainly not here on the East Coast where I live. It’s more like dirty green or brown water. 🙂

        1. Heyjude says:

          Bit like the North Sea then! Although Jo often manages to make it look quite blue.

        2. If I took pictures of our East Coast beaches, they’d never be blue! 🙂

  6. Yes, we had a marvellous day there. It was glorious like this day too.

  7. So many beautiful blues and greens.

    1. Heyjude says:

      It really is the most astonishing colour around here. You look at it and forget you are in England.

  8. Superb! No other word. Such a lovely day and gorgeous colours.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I’m hoping to get to a few more beaches before the crush descends on the county. One month from now and I shall be going nowhere other than the supermarket and the library! Or maybe we’ll adventure out on the train to a couple of places.

    The colour of the sea is just stunning.

    Happy solstice Jude. You still have the best of summer ahead of you!

    1. Heyjude says:

      I really like the long light evenings – still a blue sly at 10 pm last night. I wish I could have that all year round. I prefer the freshness of May and June. July can be nice too, but August often can be wet and cold.
