I had a few late hours at Bempton Cliffs in East Yorkshire in late June 2008.  The weather was dull and stormy and I was almost the only person there, but persistence brought dividends because at about 8pm the sun dipped below the clouds and I got 30 minutes of glorious light back-dropped by the bluish storm clouds out to sea. Up to that point I could have jumped off the cliff.

Bass Rock 02


A few days later saw me opposite Bass Rock in Scotland.  Huge numbers of gannets here - the white bits aren't snow if you look closely.
