photoblog image Lulworth Cove 4/7

Lulworth Cove 4/7

Following yesterdays image of the Eastern end of Stair Hole at Lulworth this is the Western end of this very famous geological fault taken from the high point in yesterdays shot. It is a fine place for those studying Geology and it is thought that one day in the far future erosion by the elements and the sea will turn this hole into a cove just like Lulworth Cove next door.

Nice!

Were you tempted to scramble down into it, Brian?
Brian Walbey: I wasn't Ray but apparently Alan Rolfe did when he was a lot younger than he is now.
Wonderful image Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.

I think you are right about that Brian but we might have to wait a few hundred years yet!
Brian Walbey: I think the phrase, " Not in our time" sums up your comment Chris.
This is a fine composition Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.
Never got round from Lulworth to see this, great view point.
Brian Walbey: If you get down that way then put it on your list of places to visit Martin. Midweek when only we retired folks are about is the best time though I suspect.
and cliff diving there?
Brian Walbey: No cliff diving Chantal, too dangerous, but lots of snorkling and similar pastimes.
I'm happy to see natural earth forces working on the coastal structures. Better than trying preserve things with walls of concrete.
Brian Walbey: I couldn't agree more Richard, although, as I said to Chris I don't think this will become a small bay in our lifetimes.
This end looks more impressive than yesterdays,Brian,a wonderful place.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank, I guess, if one was young and agile, it would be interesting to get down to the bottom for a good look at the rocks closer up.

And that footpath shown is a very fine walk Brian.
Brian Walbey: I guess it is Chad, but in our current states of health sadly not a walk for us, I would probably end up having another heart attack walking up that hill!!

Spectacular land/seascape depicting the rugged coast.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances.

This is a very good photo - the sea gets bluer and bluer. It must be lovely to walk along the upper path with view on the ocean!
Brian Walbey: I would love to have had the fitness and energy to walk that path but sadly not these days.
The lines in the rocks are amazing!
Brian Walbey: Just shows what nature can do doesn't it.
What lovely colours, it looks like it's in the Med.
Brian Walbey: Except it's in Dorset on a lovely sunny day, and on the horizon is the Isle of Portland.
Great structure in this, good shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Just shows what nature can do doesn't it.
Makes a wonderful shot Brian, the formation is really special! smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin, just shows nature at work.

This is obviously on a grander scale than I realised (or remembered), Brian
Brian Walbey: Well worth a trip over to look at next time you are that way Lisl.
The rock strata give this image so much movement - almost as though the hill is lifting itself!
Brian Walbey: I guess when it happened all those eons ago it was either a sudden massive event or happened slowly over many years.
Wonderful with these curves Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, it's amazing what nature can do.
These are really beautiful pictures of Lulworth, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graeme.

I wonder if that will happen in my lifetime? I'm sure Lulworth Cove used to be much much bigger when I was a child (or maybe it just seemed bigger?)
Brian Walbey: Not in either of our lifetimes I suspect Alan. Everywhere seemed bigger when I was a child.
