It may not be a vote winner but standing atop a cliff looking across to a dramatic seascape provides as fine a view as many a mountain top. The beach and sea stacks of Bedruthen Bay, Cornwall. Sept 21 taken with Panasonic Lumix.

While it's perhaps a difficult subject and was a difficult choice for me (and also someone else has already posted a heli shot) I wanted to chose this one. I have many others from September but this has to go in.

Rescue 177 from Prestwick, Saturday 20th September , 1.40pm (roughly).

This picture has a story which some will know about but that I wont repeat - but this image will stay with me for a long time. These boys really are hero's and this us their chariot. Its not the best pic here so please don't vote for it due to its story but its my picture of September 2104 so want in here .

Taken on Fuji Pinepix XP70 , some contrast and colour enhancement.

I wasn't much happy with any of the pics from the last trip but that's not really why I go on these things! A rainy day at Glen Sligachan, September 6, 2014. All camera details on Flickr.

Dont have any landscapes from September. Hopefully this qualifies as "of an outdoor nature"
