[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at the much photographed Kimmeridge Bay, in Dorset, the same location as my last post, but a different day.
This particular view is looking west across the bay from beneath Hen Cliff. The fascinating geology here varies immensely, and there are always different types of fossils to be found underneath the ever-crumbling cliffs.
If you take the time and trouble to hike further East or West along the shore from the main Bay, you will eventually find yourself in remote and little visited places that feel wild and untouched, an increasing rarity in modern England, especially the south.
Add to this the towering skyline formed by Gad Cliffs in the background, the changing tides and weather, and you have a place that never fails to provide a great photographic opportunity, or just a damned good walk...I love it here and visit a lot.

Thanks for looking...

It takes a lot for me to comment here these days but this stirs me. The clarity in the rocks in the FG are another level apart from the rest. With regards to the title you are right, a location that always manages to throw up a new emotion every time visited.
Top marks my friend and some big kudos me thinks...

Hi Paul,

A great shot showing great atmosphere. The foreground just drags you into the picture. Good colours and exposure.


Regards Bill

Hi Paul,
Another beautiful moody shot from Kimmeridge Bay.
I've just got myself a new Canon SX10 IS and want to get into a bit more landscape photography.
I'm looking forward to trying this kind of shot with it.

Hi Paul

Another superb presentation of the everso beautiful Kimmerige!
I really like how you focused your attention on the wet rocks here. The reflections of their surfaces combined with the superb colors on top, brought some gorgeous highlights and tones in the lower part of the frame, too.
Well composed as always, but i feel that you did something a bit special with the processing here. I wonder what... :)
Anyway, a terrific shot again from you.

Bravo and TFS

PS: how's your project going nowadays?

to the horizon, superb contrast of the colour tones, TFS

Cheer Rick :)

The long exposure added some glaze on the rocks, what a beautiful effect. There is an ice effect to your picture, as if frozen in time even though the water is smooth. Just like ice or some sweetened doughnut. A great shot, bien entendu. Always superb with a nice pov different in each picture. Time flows and never comes back the same. Thanks Paul!

Hi Paul.
Thanks for warm words as well as for next the most expressive landscape picture. Great applied technique and skill. Exposure parameters effects from filters are stunning. Water and stone surface, cloudy sky, and shapes of the shore impress the imagination. Bravo. Perfect job.

Bonjour Paul
Très belle composition, belles couleurs, lumière et bon cadrage, un magnifique lieu, bravo.
Amicalement... JP
