On a bright day exploring the Jurassic coastline, I took a stop in Charmouth. A steep walk up the South West coast path was rewarded with this view past the beach at Charmouth along the sandstone cliffs to Lyme Regis, with the famous Cobb harbour wall stretching out into the sea. The coastline itself is beautiful, but it was rendered all the more striking by the roll of cloud forming in the distance and the bank of white and grey looming overhead. A sharp contrast to the wisps of white scattered within the intense blue of the sky and the deep azure of the sea. This view gave sunshine and drama in equal measure – a good representation of that part of the world.
