Photographer's Note

EArly morning at Lulworth Cove in Dorset, a tiny fishing village that formerly was a key smuggling port on the south coast of England. Today it is better known for its geological formations. There are excellent exposures of folded Cretaceous and Jurassic strata and on the cliffs to the east is a fossil forest with ancient soil and tree remains. The Coastal Path passes through here and the hiking is both tortuous and exhilarating in spots, but well worth the climbs. The cove itself was formed in the aftermath of the Ice Age, some 10,000 years ago as a result of the actions of river and sea.
