Earl of Yarborough Monument - Culver Down - Isle of Wight

Processed from a single jpeg on Luminence HDR 2.3.0 to give a not too strong HDR effect.

 

Its a steep climb to get up here on foot but well worth the effort. There are stunning views all round and also The Culver Haven Inn for a drink and some lunch.

A couple drove off the edge of the cliff in their car last year not far from where this photograph was taken. They were in the car park behind me and suddenly the car revved its engine and shot out across the road and straight over a small ditch and down a final slope to the cliff edge and then smashed through a small fence and then into oblivion. When you stand there and look down it makes you wonder what can be so bad in peoples lives to prompt that final action. Goosebumps !!
