This was painted on clear, crisp mornings in the early summer of 2011 at the north end of Porthloo beach. Looking west, in the distance is the gap between Bryher and Samson. The crumbling cliff here is a Site of Special Scientific Interest because of its unique exposed geology. Much of Porthloo is sheltered (the 'loo' in its name, also written as 'low' means lee, as in sheltered). But this end of the beach is exposed to the might of the Atlantic from the south west. It is quite rugged and we can get some big seas in here.
