Nice to see you active on TN again.
This is a great shot showing not only a fine land/seascape with the black limestone at lowtide but witha big bonus of an ammonite fossil in the FG. It really puts the fossil locality into perspective. I've been fossil hunting just w of Lyme Regis but Chapmans Pool is new to me: it must be near Charmouth with the black rocks.
The fossil in the WS is a great find.
Thanks for delighting us with this,

The eroded dark shale "pavement" looks so fine with the contrasty ammonite fossil in this side lighted wide angle view Paul, some fluffy white clouds would make this take a real beauty, but as you say, you can't have everything! As for the second fossil, well, it looks like that of a vertebrate, but I would place the lamp a little farther away for a better effect...

beautiful Landscape/Seascape photography, shot with a fine POV
and the vertical framing gives a superb DOF, beautiful luminosity
excellent sharpness and details, and excellent contrast between
the sea/sky's cold colour tones and the ground's warm colour tones, TFS

Hi Paul, a splendid seascape capture of from Chapmans Pool with wonderful perspective, details and sharpness. Great DOF and POV.
TFS. Have a nice weekend!

WOW! Both for this lovely shot but probably more for the one in the WS! That looks really impressive! I'm actually a bit surprised that you are allowed to take stuff like that home...i don't think it would be allowed here :)
Anyway, i honestly hope you'll get it identified. I'm quite curious what it is. I agree with you: doesn't really look like a fish and that part from the lower right corner definitely looks like a leg. But if you say it has feathers...i might be one of those really rare links between dinosaurs and bird...who knows.
Anyway, back to this little beauty, too.
I love how you've incorporated the ammonite in the FG - it contrast so well with the rock it is in that it stands out superbly and just goes to show that anyone walking through there should mind their feet. Further on, the zig-zag and angles of the rocky beach act excellently as a lead-in lines but also contrast well, in shape, with the pebbles on the left.
On to of everything a nice cliff and a beautiful blue sky, all well saturated and exposed, to complete a gorgeous presentation.
Splendid, interesting and very original post, mate!
BRAVO and TFS

I like selected view for picture so much. The stones pattern of the shore is impressive especially. We have not such wonderful shores. Ours are from sand. All other pictured objects as well as the quality o the shot are the best too. Brilliant work. TFS and best regards.

You are so lucky for been in place like that. Great POV, I really like this shot of the fossil been part of it... Well done

A beautiful scene captured.
The foreground almost looks like slate tiles.The fossils must be exciting to find.I grew up on some land that had been quarried somewhat and spent hours hunting for fossils in rock,as a child.
The light here is warm and and the colours are deep and vibrant.
Composed with an artist's eye for detail.
