Swanage Bay, Dorset, England, UK Dorset coastline at dawn, England, UK

A beautiful dawn scene along the Dorset coastline. It’s always a pleasant mystery as to what nature will provide in a scene like this. One of the great things about photography is that it gives you the perfect excuse to just sit and watch!

The colours change constantly as the clouds move in the wind and change shape. The temparature changes too as the sun rises, and nothing stays the same for very long.

I love the interaction here between the clouds and the light, the beautiful subtle colours of the dawn light. Nothing spectacular, and that is what is so pleasant…

I love the silence too…not even an early morning dog walker, just the gentle lapping of the sea against the shoreline…

This is one from the archives that I haven’t posted here before….it has been uploaded to my gallery and one day I will create a gallery page specifically for travel images….

Well, I posted this for the photofriday challenge…link in the footer of this page…for the topic of ‘home’. It’s a good little project that encourages creating some new photography based on a theme, or to re-discover some older images.

This photo was taken during a cycle touring trip. This photo was taken just after leaving a small grocery store having filled up with ice cold fizzy pop!! This family were happy for me to take their photo and the boy was perfectly happy watching the world go by perched on the window frame!

Chesil beach, Isle of Portland, Dorset, UK Chesil beach,UK

A peaceful evening at Chesil beach…There have been svere storms here recently…but all is calm now!

Just a simple composition with the buildings on the horizon providing some scale. Chesil beach is a strange formation as it is a beach that has a lagoon behind it so it is a beach surrounded by water!

Anyway, it was a peaceful evening with lovely skies….and that is all that mattered to me!
