Number of views as of 6th February 2016 = 1000.
The county of Dorset in England has been my home for nigh on 30 years, and yet it always seems possible to find some previously unknown (to me) treasure, like this view for example.
Gad Cliff is close to the abandoned village of Tyneham (taken over by the army during the second World War) between Kimmeridge and Lulworth.
I’ve been visiting Tyneham for years and have seen Gad Cliff many times, towering above the village to the South, but I had not fully appreciated its true magnificence until last week, when we walked the coastal path between Kimmeridge and Worbarrow.
Looking west beyond the cliff are Worbarrow Bay, Mupe Bay and Mupe Rocks (top of shot, just left of centre). Further along the coast lie Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, the town of Weymouth and the Isle of Portland.
Hope you like the shot, thanks for visiting!
