Jurassic Coast

IMG_0458 A somewhat rare trip out nowadays to the Dorset coast and more specifically Kimmeridge, a very special place and somewhere I have known all my life. This particular beach is characterised be the most amazing rock formations. Before we left I grabbed my camera but very sadly on arrival I found that it was out of battery. However I did manage to capture something on my phone. Have vowed to return soon

Moving in

Marks on the Ice

Am currently looking for interesting marks in nature and those in particular on the Common. I especially love these in the ice on the ornamental pond.


Waiting

My tree fetish continues. I think I am just playing a waiting    game until the leaves return.


One in a hundred
