Point of View - Cornish Style

This past week we have had visitors which has pushed us out of 'normal' routine and off to do some other things as the weather hasn't been great. One day we booked lunch over at the fabulous Porthminster Cafe in St Ives. After a wonderful lunch, we walked into town and at one point stopped to look at the view. Here is the picture of what i saw...
And this is what 6ft 2in son saw...
This reminded me how important it is to pick the right point of view for each scene...what do you want to the reader to see, feel, hear and who is the best person to do it??? Also of course who has the most at stake...
In this case, if you wanted to reader to know what was over the wall the character had better be tall or be in heals....
