Studland Bay 4/7

Old Harry Rocks are three chalk formations, including a stack and a stump, located at Handfast Point, on the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset, southern England. They mark the most easterly point of the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There is an excellent view of these rocks from the bay, and this couple got an even better view once they had paddled  their floats quite a long way out. Alan has walked out to the tip of the headland and gained close-up views of the rocks many times I believe. This shot shows how close the Isle of Wight is just across the Solent.

A fine seascape, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, we couldn't have asked for a better day. BTW you were within 10 minutes of this place when you went to Swanage for the day.

Une vue très reposante avec cette mer calme.
Brian Walbey: It was a perfact spring afternoon with very little wind and plenty of sunshine.
Beautiful! I love this image!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, we only had two proper suny days that week and this was one of them.

As a composition this is good Brian. A competition winner?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. Sadly not a winner, the quality is not up to scratch, it is quite a large enlargement of a small area of the original.

It would be rewarding to paddle out and get a new view of these, too, Brian
Brian Walbey: If I was a swimmer then I would agree with you. We had a few words with the gentleman at the tearoom and they had a large yacht moored in the next bay along round the headland off picture to the right.

I will always remember the walk above old Harry rocks when our three small children ran off and I could not catch them. I thought I would lose them over the edge.
Brian Walbey: We've never done that walk althougn I think Alan has worn a path along the downs. Kids tend to do things like that don't they, what they call 'heart in the mouth' moments for parents.
This is an absolutely perfect shot of this well known landmark.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Mary.

An area that never fails to please, nor seeing images of it. I've always fancied paddle boarding but it would have to be conditions like this and in water no deeper than waste height (around warm, too!) It can't be that hard to do - can it?
Brian Walbey: My requirements to paddle board would be very much like yours as I can barely swim!
A fine composition Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.

The ocean is so big and my boat is so small....yet, I paddle. Exquisite scenery.
Brian Walbey: It has that feel to it doesn't it, in reality they were boarding round the little headland to the next bay where they had a yacht moored up.
There are always brave ones. Beautiful the detachment of the rocks against the sky
