[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

this was taken back in the winter, on a bitterly cold day at Lulworth Cove. I was here to try to get some sunset shots, so whilst i waited for the sun to go down i took a wander round to the western reaches of the shore.
This is looking east across the bay, with the low sun behind lighting the cliffs. This particular spot was in the shadow of the cliffs behind, which allowed me a longer exposure time in which to show the flow of the incoming tide a little better. I love the long limetone ledges here, they are very photogenic.
You may notice that this ledge is tilting to the right at almost 45 degrees, and in the distance there are some bands of rock at the same angle - this is due to the bending and folding of rock that occurred when the African tectonic plate drifted north and collided with the Eurasion plate, a process that created the French Alps and continues to this day..

Thanks for looking..

Hi Paul.
Pictured by you places are simply fantastic always, however, pictures of these landscapes are even better. I am impressed with all components of photo art. Exposure, amazing colours, POV and framing of the scene, incredible details across the frame. Bravo. Great job as usual.

Hello Paul,
Another beautiful landscape from Dorsset taken from a fine angle and in beautiful light. The limestone rock wedges are beautiful and lead nicely into the far distance. Wonderful light on the cliff in the distance and beautiful colours. I gather you've cooler weather than we have, here it's too hot inside and outside while thunderstorms are on their way!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Paul! Amazing vertical composition. Wonderful seascape. Excellent dynamic exposure. Great effect. Good luck!

Hallo Paul
Wintertime, summertime, autumn or spring, no matter what season, you bring forth the most beautiful landscapes, just like this one of today. I just love the way one are able to look far, far in the distance as if the ocean is never going to end. I also like the sunshine capture on the one side of the scene and a bit of darkness on the other side. Once again a great image. If you are not around with your beautiful landscape images there is an immense VOID on the site. Please stop by more often. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Ciao Paul, fantastic seascape, wonderful exposure, splendid light and colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hola Paul.
Great use of Your lens and camera. Only with this kind of photographers like You can get an excellent and fine image. Love the focus all the way.

Missed looking at your outstanding images Paul, love this one.
The vertical orientation works perfectly here, with sharp details FG running well up into the frame..And these near rocks point the way nicely :)
