About this spot
Lizard Point is the most southerly point in mainland Britain. It's an incredible spot for wildlife - especially birds and marine mammals - but it's also a gem of a place for seascape photography.

The abandoned lifeboat station makes for a great subject, as do the rocks known as Lead Pool further to the west. To the east Lizard Point Lighthouse overlooks the cliffs and further exploration along this short section of coastline will throw up some beautiful scenes. If you face south however, you'll be looking out over the English Channel and at night there's zero light pollution, providing perfect conditions for astrophotography.

Winter sunsets here - between October and March - can be amazing and this is also a great spot to shoot rough seas during stormy conditions.
