great image, I really like the perspective, the way the sky changes colour as the picture recedes to the horizon...

I would like to see more shots from the archives ;-) Especially shots like these one. Unusual POV (two see shores on one shot), great depth of view.
I like it very much
This is again a simply fantastic shot from your archives...it just goes to show that with a bit of luck in weather, on an outing you can really take lots and lots of great photos in this area and you have so many that a photo such as this would end up "sitting" for 4 months :)
I hope to be as fruitful, too :)
The view here is just breathtaking and the way you've composed it is brilliant!
The vertical chalk rocks in the distance look great but they needed an anchor in the FG...you managed to find just the perfect thing! Both the main plant towards the right, but, i would dare to say, the one on the left (the vivid one), too are exceptional elements here and really add some more contrast in an area that would have otherwise lacked some.
The result is really really beautiful...handled like a PRO!
Superb work, my friend!
BRAVOOO and TFS

Hello Paul me old mucker!
Now what can I say about this that needs words....You had a really flat calm day and made the most of it with the FG tight and not a hint of movement with your 3 sec exposure...Little point in me saying much else just to thank you for sharing yet another stunner!!
And the weather does look a bit off this weekend...there goes my plans and yours!!
Top Post and a good weekwnd to you Mr Haynes.

Another exquistite composition, combining a great POV, razor sharp focus and excellent exposure. Great posting.
PS I think you have got some sea kale in the foreground - it is not that common.

What great colours, Paul, it is striking! The purplish blue on top of the frame coming down gently to that illuminated gold is fantastic! I like that cabbage-like plant at the foreground. It is beautifully captured, great pov and the white cliffs are magnifiques! And great notes. Thanks again,

A highly contrasted image from fore to aft....There is a particular quality and difference in this one as the background is larger but the smaller and brighter could be anything one wanted to sell ...and in this case it highlights the herbs and stuff...A very neat notion...

This shot really is just amazing!
Bright interesting f/g, and then that breathtaking leap into the calm ocean flanked by sheer limestone cliffs, and overlooked by a soft purple sky!

Really a breathtaking shot, I know that UK coasts are amazing places for photography but framing and composition and exposure are sometimes hard to correctly decide. You did it perfectly. Well done

I have watched your landscape pictures with my wife and she has shared my delight. This one is so wonderful as others. I like wonderful combination of absolutely different object in the scene. Richly coloured vegetation, cold monumental rocks, boundless sea and fathomless sky. Superb framing, amazing POV and wonderful sharpness and coloure palette. My greetings and TFS.

Llevaba unos días ya sin ver tu galería, he estado por Italia unos días. Veo que esa costa de Dorset sigue dando buenos e inacabables frutos jeje. El ángulo alto bien, pero sobre todo ese excelente primer plano de flora local, contrastado su color efectivamente con el fondo.
El fondo un buen trabajo de luz y color.
