Afternoon At West Bay

Afternoon at West Bay

It was such a beautiful day today that I just had to get out and about, so I decided to walk from Bridport to West Bay and back along the old railway track, which is now a bridleway and cyclepath.

By the time I got to West Bay, the light was already getting a lovely orange glow, and the cliffs looked beautiful.

Personally, no image can depict Dorset more than the yellow cliffs of Bridport Sand at West Bay, though that might be due to the fact that I’m a geologist.

Today, I had a good walk around to scope out a new location, as I normally shoot from the beach and struggle to get foreground interest.  Today I walked along the harbour and realised that I could use the sea defences protecting the harbour as the foreground.

I’m pleased with the result, though I would have liked a slightly more interesting sky, but I guess you can’t have everything.
