Oh dear. Discovered. I thought I could get away without you spotting the red cape - or the helicopter. :)

Wow! I had heard about this shipwreck - but not seen the actual place! Agree, amazing shot - and the cape didn't get in the way!!! ;-)

There are many paths to the top of the mountain, but the view is always the same. Chinese Proverb........I think you'll really like Chinese Lion. roar.

Thats an awesome shot, I wonder how you got it? From an airplane? helicopter? Also, WHY is there no lighthouse to warn ships of those rock formations? one could surely get trapped in there and never come out..

Thanks for the comment Verena, I was in a helicopter. There are some lighthouses along that coast and it used to be known as the shipwreck coast. A famous wreck happened in the gorge and only two people survived - a young woman passenger and the young crewman who recued her and then climbed out and found help.

Now the lighthouses mostly don't operate. Everyone uses GPS.

I had a dream the looked a lot like this, except instead of sheer cliff and tumultuous water there was a calm beach in each cove.

This is gorgeous!!!
The rock in the middle looks like a whale to me.
What a tragic story in such a beautiful place.
I'm still new at Caedes, so I'm really enjoying seeing pictures and hearing stories about people and places all around the world.
