Along the ocean in the south of England is an area called the Jurassic Coast. It’s a World Heritage site and features about 100 miles of natural beauty. The weather wasn’t perfect during my visit, and I didn’t get to see as much of it as I would have liked. But what I did see was pretty wonderful.
I’m already thinking about a return trip in the Spring, when the weather might be slightly more to my liking, and before the crowds show up. There are two wide lenses I like for this sort of thing; a rather beat-up Canon 17-40mm and a newer Canon 16-35. I used the 16-35 for most of the photography on this excursion. The views were so massive that I really needed the wide angle to take in as much as I could.
I’m also grateful that the sun popped out for a few magical seconds right at sunset. The first shot above was of Durdle Door (which we started calling Dumbledore by the end of the trip.) The second shot is from atop Lulworth Cove, and these last two are from Man Of War, which is connected to Durdle Door. A little research on the Jurassic Coast shows about 20 more spots which look like they’ll be amazing to photograph.
