photoblog image Lulworth Cove 3/7

Lulworth Cove 3/7

The previous two images were taken from above Stair Hole at Lulworth Cove. This is the first of two images of that geological remnant of many eons ago, the Eastern end, when unknown forces from an earthquake twisted the strata into this almost vertical pattern, I will show the other end of this big hole tomorrow.

You are making me wish I was close enough to visit, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you would enjoy Lulworth and the surrounding area Ray.

A wonderful area of England Brian. Stunning coastline.
Brian Walbey: This is just an amazing bit of nature Frances, indeed the whole coastline along there is really impressive.

It is often awe inspiring to see rock formations as you have shown and described Brian. Mr Trim might be able to tell us more.
Brian Walbey: This formation is of course quite famous isn't it, and none the less spectacular for that.

It is amazing to see such a thing: the figures on top give scale
Brian Walbey: It is a great view from up there as I guess you know.

It seem like a freak of nature, Brian, doesn't it!
Brian Walbey: An amazing reminder of nature and the earth beneath our feet Ginnie.
The power of the forces of nature are very evident Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes this is quite a famous place to see I believe.
I love all that twisted rock, and no matter how often you look you see something different each time.
Brian Walbey: So do I Sheila, tomorrow i am showing the other side of this deep hole.
A fine bit of geology there, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Indeed Tom, I believe this is one of the things Lulworth is famous for.
beauty of nature
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed and also the power of nature Chantal.

Oh! There's a fence there now! Where's the excitement in that? smile The forces that caused that upheaval are incomprehensible. I'm clambered down that cliff and also slipped down it on another occasion.
Brian Walbey: In reality of course Alan it is wise to have a fence there, it must have good fun clambering down to the bottom.
A fascinating place,Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Frank, I'm showing the other side of this big hole tomorrow.
Lovely dramatic landscape capture Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Fred, one of natures marvels.

Oh, a great photo - an impressive rock formation reminding us of millions of years - sportive persons might have climbed up to the view point on the top! I myself saw the ocean in this area as intensely blue as you showed it.
Brian Walbey: It is a fine example of what nature can do isn't it, and a real joy for those with geological interests.
A lovely shot of this formation Brian! And the turquoise sea is a treat smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin, the sea really was that colour, no PS trickery!
Great bit of coast this Brian
Brian Walbey: It is a real joy to see this part of our coastline John.
Fabulous spot to have visited and glad you did. I am glad to see it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, it is lovely all the way along that part of our coast, it is called the Jurassic Coast and is a World Heritage site as you can see here http://jurassiccoast.org/
Just shows the power of earth forces
Brian Walbey: Indeed it does Richard. There is something similar to this in the old quarry on the south side of junction 23 of the M1 just near the end of the slip road, I saw it a few times when I worked in the Hanson offices there up till 2002.
Quite spectacular Brian! Very nicely captured.
Brian Walbey: The works of nature Richard.

What an unusual name - do you know how it came to be called that, Brian?
Brian Walbey: I've no idea Lisl, perhaps there was stairs down it at one time, although Alan Rolfe remembers sliding down to the bottom when he was a lot younger.
That is so COOL!!!
Brian Walbey: A marvel of nature Elizabeth, the other side of the hole on Thursday.
