Alessio, who lives in London, said: “It does rain, but when the sun sheds its warm light on the majestic rugged coastline, on the white sand dunes or on an early morning sunrise at the windiest lighthouse in the UK, it can create a beautiful sight and you immediately fell in love with it.

“Especially when after some good amount of rain, the sun breaks through and paints everything that you see with a golden spellbound.

“There’s nothing much you can do but just enjoy in silence the beauty of nature.”
