A trip to the North Devon coast is always a pleasure,yesterday we visited Welcombe Mouth.
Welcombe lies on the Atlantic Coast just on the Devon side of the North Devon/Cornwall border midway between Bideford and Bude. The parish of Welcombe comprises a scattered group of hamlets incorporating approximately 100 households. The village sits astride a deep valley which leads a meandering stream to the cliff edge at Welcombe Mouth where it ends in a picturesque waterfall. St Nectan's Church looks over the northern flank of the valley while The Old Smithy Inn lies on the southern side. Some of the people who live in Welcombe commute to neighbouring towns and villages to work on a daily basis, others run businesses from home including the pub, pottery, tourist accommodation, builders and farmers.
Welcombe is part of the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

standard as usual, high.
what i like about this shot is not only the clarity but you have to look at the waterfall to appreciate the technical side of this shot to control the light.
a very unassuming shot, TFS

Hello Les - What a marvellous coastal landscape. The distinctive geology makes a great feature here as it leads the eye put into the sea and I love the small cascades where your slow shutter speed works well adding a softer texture which contrasts with the hard-edged rocks.
Nicely composed and managed, this looks like a super area to explore.

Excellent Welcombe Mouth scene, the multiple waterfalls flowing across the tilted sedimentary rocks leading into the sea, enhanced by the surrounding plants in saturated greens.
Nicely composed and created,

voici une très belle composiiton, d'une paysage très spécial offrant une bonne variation de teintes, de structure et de lumière.
J'aime bien la présence de l'eau sur les roches.

Excellent colour and composition leading the eye out to sea. Love the feathers created in the water too. Beautiful and dramatic!

I love the POV, colours and sharpness!

love this! The light and detailing here are irresistible, but it is the 3 second exposure that has made it all so magical with the silky waters splashing over the rocks. Stunning imagery!
Regards - B.

I like the green hues lighten by the low sun, and I can appreciate the small waterfalls leading the view on the rocks formation in parallel lines eroded by the sea.
Nice soft hues.

Ciao caro Les
Ahh this is just a feast for my eyes. Beautiful light here and the rock formations are truly breath-taking. The slow shutter has worked its magic on the falling water, misting it beautifully. You handled the strong light from the sun like a professional
Hugs to you and G, I hope you health is improving

Nice motion blur in all 3 cascades with good warm light on the yellow green grass top left. I like the unusual natural perspective created by the vertical rock strata leading into the sea. Good sharpness and color saturation. Top shot! Tfs!

Great view well managed with the water effect, interesting result with these lines, nice depth and perfect light capture.

i really enjoy your photos of these rustic landscapes from the UK.
There's just something wild and 'out of control' about them that i find appealing.
you'd have to watch your step around this area!
welld one with the 3 sec exposure, you have a mini waterfall on the left over there, a nice addition i'm sure.
A piece of Wild and Untamed Nature
