Dorset's Durdle DoorThis is the view from the cliff edge looking down onto the Jurassic Coastline. Durdle Door is the famous natural limestone arch way through the rock face. It is on private land in Lulworth but it is free to visit. Parking is reasonably priced.The name Durdle is from an old English word ‘thirl’ which means to bore or drill. The beach is called Man O’War beach.
Dorset's Heart on a FenceThis material heart was obviously lost by someone. I am guessing someone who found it tied it to the fence so that it was not trampled on and the person who lost it could find it again.I noticed the heart hanging on the fence on the walk down from the car park to Durdle Door.I thought it made a lovely image with the blurred background of the sea.
St. Mary's Church, Attenborough, UKSt. Mary’s Church in Attenborough, Nottinghamshire, UK is a parish church in the Church of England. The church is a Grade 1 listed building.This is the view from the pond from within the Attenborough Nature Reserve. It was a cold winter’s morning and the pond was slightly frozen still from the cold night before.
Stonehenge Winter SunThe famous prehistoric monument in Amesbury, Wiltshire , UK taken in the long shadow winter sun. The tall standing stones are around 13 feet high and weigh in about 25 tons each.There are a lot of ‘unknowns’ about the structure with thousands of speculations of ‘whats’, ‘hows’ ‘whys’ and ‘whens’You can’t walk up to the stone anymore as it is now a protected heritage site. Drones can only be flown with special permission.
Portsmouth Harbour Ships and BoatsFrom Gosport overlooking Portsmouth harbour, there were some tiny sail boats moored near a large ship. There was a thunderstorm in the distance which I was hoping to capture but it was just a little too far away.
Vestrahorn Mountain on Skokksnes BeachVestrahorn Moutan is a famous landmark in Iceland. The beaches are made of black sand and the mountain has a long tunnel through it joining the South of Iceland to the East of Iceland. This was one of my favourite places of the many in Iceland.
Vestrahorn Reflection in Skokksnes Black Sand LakeVestrahorn Mountain in Iceland being reflected in a somewhat overcast day. The lake is very shallow at only about 3-4 inches. The black sand of the lake is what gives it that amazing depth to the reflection. You can walk on the lake and it looks like you’re walking on water. It is truly a breath taking view and experience.
November Northern LightsNovember 2018. On the last day of our trip, the skies cleared and the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) made an appearance. Such an amazing view. I have been told that they get really strong in 11 year cycles. So 2025 is apparently going to be a great year to see them bright and plentiful.
Traditional Tree Tyre SwingWhile out walking on the common near where I live, I stumbled across this old swing. It looks like it is used often from the foot holes below it. Such a lovely thing to see in this day and age with smartphones, tablets and video games. Kids do still play out doors.
White & Yellow Daisy PairThese daisies were soaking up the sun. I noticed how perfect they were and so waited for a cloud to give a little relief from the sun and took the photo. Really lovely little flowers.
