South West Abridged…

16th – 19th June 2012:

So here’s a bit of a mixed lot from when I spent four days in the South West, taking in Lyme Regis, Cheddar Gorge, Shaftesbury and some of the flora near the cottage we stayed at which was near Wincanton.

The photos from Cheddar Gorge caves were a bit tricky – I forgot to take a tripod, so wasn’t hugely successful! There were some fascinating formations though…

The trip to see the famous Gold Hill in Shaftesbury (scene of the Hovis Add) was also a bit of a nightmare because there were safety fences all over the place which hindered the scene somewhat!

At Lyme Regis, aside from the fossil images in the previous post I also found a few other interesting subjects, and in order to capture the scale of the place I decided to make a couple of panoramas. These obviously don’t look great here as they are tiny, but they seemed to work well and you’ll have to take my word for it that they look pretty good when you can zoom in. The one of the Cob consists of about 6 images, whilst the longer of the two that shows Dorest’s Jurassic coastline disappearing into the distance is made up of about 10 photos.

Both Lyme Regis and Shaftesbury had some interesting architecture, so I’d like to visit both again and spend a bit more time studying that – perhaps without the family getting bored of my incessant photographing…

There was also a beautiful meadow (albeit probably artificially created) near to the cottage we stayed at which was near Wincanton.
