Plaza Chueca, Madrid. Christmas lights in the rain. First shown in 2016 on ipernity from a shot taken in 2013. I can't upload my new 2020 Christmas shot so a blast from the past will have to suffice!

These are profuse here between April and June, as are others including a Snake's Tongue variety. Well, early June is still spring in the Sierra. Anacamptis picta, is the name of this variety. I have Ronald Losure to thank for this information. He has included more information and photos in a useful link alongside his comment below. Shot taken 2013 and first posted on ipernity 2016.

They only open at the height of the strongest sun and when the temperature gets really hot, sometimes for an hour or so only. I have seen them closed on a sunny and warm day - it just wasn't quite hot enough. This is not photoshopped or edited in any major way. The tulip colours and the grey of the degraded granite were as seen. Sight and sound!

South West Peninsula coast Path between Basset Cove and Ralph's Cupboard, Portreath, Cornwall. For Pam. Full screen best, I think. I simply felt like showing it again. It cheers me up! Hope it does the same for you. An addition to Project 21, April: Flowers.

Granite cliffs at St Agnes' Head, St Agnes' Heritage Coast. Good fun scrambling down to this point and good exercise getting back up! I used to to do it 10 times a day when I was trying to lose the weight I put on after I quit smoking! It worked! Try on Z please.

Crane Islands from Basset Cove, Cornwall

Part of my low tide walk between Porthcadjack and Greenbank Coves. This is not the lowest the tide gets. I normally walk across here further out to sea. I can only guess that the tide is on the way out as I would never attempt it if it were coming in! .

Porthmeor Farm, Zennor, Cornwall. HFF!

HFF to all my ipernity and IMA friends. There is a fence in there somewhere; the horse has got it (almost) covered!

Honeysuckle, Fishing Cove, Cornwall

High above the beach by the side of the steep path. A lazy, hazy summer's afternoon. The cliffs seen here are called The Knavocks. No idea why.

North Cliffs from Reskajeage Downs, Cornwall

The notorious (for shipping anyway) Hell's Mouth is tucked in the cliffs in the middle distance. Fundraising is still going on. Apparently and, ultimately, IMA need at least 50.000 $ to continue Ipernity into 2018!
