Spring Sunset over Durdle Door
Lovely sunset, late afternoon on March 1st 2014. Shot taken from the South West Coast Path, above Durdle Door. Above the arch is the isle of Portland, with Weymouth to its right.
Gold Hill above the Mist
The first morning of November 2015 certainly produced a lot of mist! The traditional locations like Colmer's Hill and Corfe Castle were ruled out, so I headed north and headed high. By the time I got to Shaftesbury, the sun had melted through the mist at Gold Hill, but not in the valley below. I had the location all to myself, which was a bonus!
Sunset over Corfe Castle
The sun shines through a window in the ruin of Corfe Castle, taken on the evening of 8th March 2014. Mist was rising from saturated ground, warmed by the Spring sunshine earlier in the day.
Storms over West Dorset
Taken in May 2013, during an unseasonably cold and wet day. If my memory serves me correct, my car was reading 5C and it was howling a gale on Eggardon Hill, from where this photo was taken.
Eggardon Double Sunset
Threatening clouds over West Dorset split this hazy sunset into two, observed from the top of Eggardon Hill.

Eggardon Hill - After the Storm
What a crazy day of weather it was! 5C, strong winds, with hail storms one moment, then mid-spring warm sunshine the next. Hard to keep up, but I did manage to snap this shot on top of Eggardon Hill, just as another sharp shower was passing.

A Fabulous Expanse of Coastline
I love the Jurassic Coast, especially when you get views like this. Taken on Saturday 27th April on top of Golden Cap, which is the highest point on the entire south coast of England. Lyme Bay curls around to the left and, in the distance, you can just make out Lyme Regis.
