Rocks and Beach at Ilfracombe

This is one of the small beaches in Ilfracombe, North Devon. It was a wet, grey day and the dark sands and stone with the mist in the distance make it look quite sinister. I can't help thinking that if there was a beach in Mordor, it would look a bit like this - look, it appears that the Addams family live on that hilltop!

Seriously though, the seaside normally conjours up images of sunshine and sandcastles - but it's still just as picturesque in dull weather. You can see the rain falling against the backdrop of that dark rock. It was the end of December, after all!
