The Man on a Hill

It was an unexpected hike. The early September brisk air tempted us out of our go-to coffee shop to saunter around the area. We had just arrived in a tiny town called Lulworth on the coast of Dorset in southern England. Blackberry hedges paved the way down a quaint road with a sign at the end directing us to journey towards "The Cove". We followed. Aged stone danger signs were lodged on the steep cliffs towering over us. It was as if the cliffs themselves were daunting us away - but that didn't stop us. With each step we gained more height and with more height our blood seemed to curdle, although not from fear. We were at the top and we were brimming with wonder. The Atlantic in front of us, the city trailing behind. We were sitting on top of the world. I looking up at him, pulled my Canon out, and captured a moment I'll never forget.
