Scilly Rocks 8

To the best of my knowledge this granite rock on St Agnes in the Isles of Scilly has no local name, but when I first saw it it became the ‘Mysterious Feline’, and so it has remained.  I apologise for the quality of the image  –  it was edited during the first wave of enthusiasm after I acquired Photoshop 7.  But I still feel the grittiness enhances the character.  Maybe that’s just an excuse!

Scilly Rocks 7

In my introduction to Scilly Rocks 1 I mentioned the extraordinary granite outcrops on the Isles of Scilly.  This photo provides yet another example.  I recommend that you click the above link and, indeed, look in on the related images.  It is scarcely necessary to comment on the similarity of this rock formation to a giant tortoise.

Scilly Rocks 1

In addition to their natural beauty and evidence of earlier cultures  –  such as the standing stone on Gugh and various cysts and burial chambers from the Bronze Age  –  the Isles have an air of mystery about them.  Especially St Agnes.  Granite outcrops suggest strange creatures from a fantasy or mythological world  –  giant lizards, serpents, turtles, birds of prey  ………   You are never alone on St Agnes!
