Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

I continue with photographs from the county of Dorset.

This photograph shows Lulworth Cove, a beauty spot in the county. It is a very natural harbour, seen in my workshop, from above, you will be able to appreciate that more clearly.

But, you will notice that most people on the beach appear to be looking downwards, not out to sea. enjoying the vista.

... Lulworth Cove is similar to much of the coast in Dorset, it is popular for fossil hunting, which is what these people are doing.

The area around Lulworth Cove contains a fossil forest, and 71 different rock strata have been identified, each with its own species of ammonite.

It is part of the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site on the English Channel coast of southern England. It stretches from Exmouth in East Devon to Studland Bay in Dorset, a distance of about 96 miles (154 km), and was inscribed on the World Heritage List in mid-December 2001

Thank you for sharing my photograph, Bev :-)
