Hi all,

this was taken on friday evening at Stair hole which is located immediately to the west of lulworth cove.


Stair Hole, just to the west of Lulworth Cove, is a remarkable small cove with natural arches cut into steeply-dipping Portland and basal Purbeck limestones. Through these arches and a gap where one has collapsed the sea enters to erode the softer parts of the Purbeck limestones and shales. Soft multicoloured Wealden strata slump southwards towards the sea. The most remarkable feature of Stair Hole is seen in the eastern cliff. Here is a cross-section throught the Lulworth Crumple, where small folds in the Purbeck strata are present within the steep northern limb of the Purbeck Monocline.

Thanks for looking

Hi Ewan,
An excellent landscape!

Hi Ewan,

A good slow shot showing the water movements very well. Good colours and compostion. Like the way the light catches the folded rock formation in the background. TFS

regards Bill
