photoblog image Durlston Head 7/7

Durlston Head 7/7

The final shot from Durlston Head is taken from below Durlston Castle on the cliff top above and behind me. In the foreground is Durlston Bay and then the other bay beyond the headland is Swanage Bay which leads round to the white cliffs below Ballard Down to the Old Harry Rocks at Ballard Point. I will show you more of those rocks in at some other time.

This is so pretty! Great photo of this coastline!
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely and everchanging stretch of coastline.
That is an impressive view, Graeme.
Brian Walbey: What is interesting is that both headlands are next to each other with Swanage in between yet both are made of different rock.
Sorry! Brian...smile
Brian Walbey: You are forgiven Frank, that's another coffee you owe me in September smile

A wonderful part of the country, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It most certainly is Ray, I wish it wasn't so far away from us as Maureens brother lives only a few miles down the coast at Poole.

You are making me pine for the Dorset coast Brian
Brian Walbey: Well it is a fien and everchanging coastline, perhaps you ought to take Ginnie and Astrid there one day as you did Ray, they keep syaing they would like to see some of it.
Like Chris I feel the desire to go to Dorset again!
Brian Walbey: I wish it wasn't so far away from us as Maureens brother lives only a few miles down the coast at Poole.
I have enjoyed Durlston Head very much.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, what a shame you can't enjoy it for real, mind you it has unusually been covered in snow for the last few days.

Oh, this is a wonderful view -yes, I remember the old Harry Rocks, a lovely part of England!
Brian Walbey: It would have been an even better view if it had been a nice sunny day as well.
The shore on your side is always very jagged.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Claudion, somewhere between the two headlands the nature of the geology completely changes.

There's little clue as to the size of Swanage Bay from this shot. It is certainly well protected form he usual souther westerly gales.
Brian Walbey: It is well hidden from the elements isn't it. Apparently my B.I.L. in Poole was snowed in last week where he lives, a most unusual occurence. The webcams on Brownsea Island were showing the bay all completely frozen.
