Cabo de San Vicente - on a good day!

    This, the South-Westernmost point of Europe, can be a wild place at the best of times and is wracked by Atlantic storms frequently in Winter. Even on a good day, when I visited, the North-west winds were gusting to 30 knots and it was difficult to stand still enough to take photographs. On a quiet day the inevitable Atlantic swell gives the 75 metre high cliffs a hard time, so dramatic shots are always a possibility.

    Looking towards the Cape from the South East, fairly "sheltered" waters downwind of the point, believe it or not there were four surfers dwarfed in these breakers when the shot was taken:

    The aftermath, these ledges are often the haunt of rod and line fisherman:
