photoblog image Lulworth Cove 1/7

Lulworth Cove 1/7

During the Dorset holiday we went to Lulworth Cove, somewhere we haven’t been for many years, and as you will see it was a lovely day. This is a panorama of 5 shots “stitched” together and gives a general view over the bay itself. Lulworth Cove was formed approximately 10,000 years ago by the awesome powers of a river and the sea. It continues to evolve behind a narrow Portland Stone entrance as the softer Purbeck, Wealden, Greensand and Chalk exposures are eroded.


The travel company [ Albatross Travel ] are using [this image ] of mine on their website and now in their brochure, I'm quite pleased to say the least.

A favourite haunt of mine ever since I first discover it arou d the age of sixteen. I was always impressed by the beautifully pure circle of the cove.
Brian Walbey: I think I was only about 10 or 11 when I first went to Lulworth, and this was my first return as far as I can recall.

Now I find it over touristed Brian.
Brian Walbey: It wasn't too bad on this day being midweek in September, but I bet it is not the same during the school holidays.

A terrific shot Brian: you aught to do more of this sort of thing
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, it really needs the right sort of place for panoramas, we are off to the Lake District in May, perhaps I might get some panos.there.

Beautifully stitched, Brian - so clear and inviting
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl.
yes, I'm afraid the pleasures of such wonderful coastline and the county in general do suffer from those annoying tourists who take my parking spot.
Brian Walbey: I know what you mean Richard, although being midweek during term time in September we found Lulworth reasonably uncrowded.
nice panoramic view
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
Beautiful composition and colours Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Fred.
Well done on getting the Charlecote picture published. This is a cracking picture of Lulworth cove Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks on both counts Bill.
You are definitely a stitching wizard, Brian. This is a stunning panorama of Lulworth Cove. Congrats on the Albatross Travel honour!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly, this is only about the 3rd.or 4th.panorama I've ever tried to be honest.
A lovely shot Brian, the colours are so intense.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much.

One of my favourite areas. Great work on the panorama; no sign of any editing. I've been there in all weathers including a day or so after the "Great Storm" when I felt in real danger of being blown off the cliff; quite scary.

Well done on being published; richly deserved.
Brian Walbey: We hadn't been there for years Alan and fortunately, being midweek in September it wasn't too busy and was a lovely day as you can see.
A wonderful panorama Brian, I love this area! smile Well done on the brochure!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin, we hadn't been there for many years.
