The South coast of Devon has been one area that I have been wanting to visit for many months now but it has never come to pass. However the coast line at this time of year is when it's best to visit, strong spring light and an abundance of flora on the cliff edges transform the cliff edges and views beyond. After the sun dropped below the horizon the clouds where illuminated with a pink glow that complimented the thrift in the foreground.
