The sea is beautiful but powerful and can sometimes be a little daunting so isn't it nice to think an ancient knight could be looking over us whilst we paddle, surf or kayak?

Photographers have been snapping shots of this rock off Trevose and Dinas head and they swear there's a figure in the rock face.

What do you think?

Can you see it?

Local artist Neil Mawdsley shot the pictures to later develop into paintings and is convinced he can see a man with a sword.

He said:: "I see a figure with a crown holding perhaps a scroll or sword

"So I like to think that he is watching over the surfers who here chance the surf to find the perfect, wave to protect them and speed them ashore safely."

Still can't see it?

What about now?

The rock called The Bull can be seen from Constantine Bay in North Cornwall; Could it be Constantine the saint?

According to the legend St. Constantine was the nephew of King Arthur who he gave the crown when he was wounded.

Neil's next open studio week is the last week of September.
