Beachy Head II

Looking down from Beachy Head. I used my old Minolta 24-85mm zoom, with polariser on all these shots. This gives the marked range on the full frame Sony. Unlike a lot of zooms it does well at the long end as well as the wide angle.

Terrific shot John but did you feel giddy taking it?
I love the point of view. It makes one wonder where you are and wondering anything makes it mysterious and that is good!
A beautiful image John and lovely angle.

very cool vantage point!!! the thing that gets me are the wires seemingly going off into the distance!
John Prior: Hi Crash, thanks for comments. The wires went to place about a third up the the 400ft cliff, the power supply I would imagine
Good shot John, I especially like the circular ripples round the base of the tower.

This is stunning. Beautiful minimalist. I'm glad you showed us the colors, but I'd enjoy seeing it in greyscale too.
nice view point, must get a bit lonely for the person manning this one... or is it someone going over in a boat at certain times of the day only?
