“THOSE WHO DWELL AMONG THE BEAUTES AND MYSTERIES OF THE EARTH,
ARE NEVER ALONE OR WEARY OF LIFE”

This fossil was found on the Jurassic coast in Lyme Regis, Dorset, England. I found a few fossils myself but nothing as large as this one. This was for sale at one of the local fossil shops in Lyme Regis.

Mary Anning who lived in the 1800’s was an ardent fossilist, and she came to Lyme Regis to explore and research – she most influenced the history of science at that time.

A self-taught, passionate photographer and writer – I love capturing beauty through the eyes of a camera. I have self-published 9 books, all non-fiction except one. My books are real life human interest topics that I feel are worthy of reflection.
