Photographer's Note

This is a detail from the folly at Mount Edgecumbe,in Cornwall.[A folly can be a mock temple,castle,ruin,etc., built as a romantic addition to a view.]
Mount Edgecumbe is a Tudor home of the Earls of Mount Edgecumbe.The house is located on a peninsular that extends into the River Tamar, giving Edgecumbe and the surrounding grounds some spectacular views over Plymouth Sound, one of England's finest natural harbours.
In the distance, Plymouth can be seen.The large building that looks like a church is actually part of the docks where naval ships are built.
