Photos: Southwestern England

Other galleries:


Some of southwestern England’s highlights include the ragged, dramatic cliffs of Cornwall’s coast, the enigmatic megaliths of Stonehenge and impressive castles dating back centuries. This gallery features all this and more with one of my favourite places in England getting a lot of attention: St. Michael’s Mount. A submerged causeway to the island is revealed when the tide is low and magically, a trip that required a boat is walkable a few hours later.
