Daily Picture - 43

Winter sunset at Corbiere this evening.  The hands are a memorial to the French catamaran "Saint-Malo which struck a rock to the north of Corbiere on Easter Monday, April 17th 1995.  All 307 passengers and crew were saved.  I remember standing on the cliffs that morning and watching them tow the stricken ship round in St Aubins.  Somewhere I still have the slides of that memorable day.
On evenings like this it must be the most photographed location on the Island.
