Similar but Different – on The Cobb at Lyme Regis – The Dorset Rambler

I took a trip west to Lyme Regis at the weekend and while I was there, I decided to try to capture some of the drama of the sea giving The Cobb a bit of a pounding. It had actually been a rather lovely day up to that point and did not seem overly windy…

An Ending and a Beginning…..Happy New Year! – The Dorset Rambler
