We return to two places today of great similarity. Firstly Dorset and Lulworth Cove.
I spent my later teenage years growing up in Bovington not too far from this beauty spot, my dad would put us in the car and off we would go, ice cream and plenty of fun.
I knew Lulworth as the place where dad went to fire the tanks with the regiment occasionally whilst he was still serving in the army. Yes its a live range for the British army, Chieftain in those days.
It is funny how as teenagers we do not notice the beauty that surrounds us, but as we grow older we start to notice the finer things in life. I never thought I would enjoy photographing a formation of rocks or flowers for instance.
This natural beauty attracts tourists from all over the world, taking advantage of the boat trips out so you can see the Durdle Door at its best and of course the ice cream from all those years ago.
Secondly we look back at Pembrokeshire as we travelled to Wales last year and went to the Green Bridge of Wales which is a very similar configuration of rocks and again the British Army go here too to use the Tank Ranges known as Castlemartin military training area.
Something missing from this trip however was the boats. I did not see anywhere where you could hire a boat and go out and this this wonderful spot from the water, a great shame as this would have been as good if not better – so long as those tanks were not firing of course.
It was rather precarious also, as you moved towards the edge the stones would fall from under your feet meaning you had to stay in places to take the pictures where your shadow was being projected in front of you, not ideal but I think I did ok in the circumstances.
If you enjoy taking photographs you will enjoy these two spots I promise you. There are plenty more pictures on the pages and I would really love to hear your thoughts.
