image captionHarriet Duffy: "I took this during a spontaneous sunset mission on a cliff walk in New Quay, west Wales. At the beginning of the summer holiday my friends and myself take a trip towards the coast after having been stuck inland for most of the year. I only started taking photos to capture the memories that we have whilst we're all together. I hope it inspires other people to drop everything and to go explore the great British coastline."
