Here are a few pics of Blue Anchor Bay (best viewed Large if you have the time), on the North Somerset Coast. The First three were taken very late afternoon around sunset-time in October from the beach, looking towards Minehead - I added the last two, taken early morning in the spring looking down on Blue anchor with Minehead in the distance, for a bit of variety (and warmth!). Hope you like them. Dave.
(The first three were with Canon 450D and 28-135mm, the last two with my old Fuji S7000 fixed lens at the beginning of the year. You can see a big difference in sharpness with the first three, or I think so anyway...)

As a child I would walk down to Blue Anchor with my Grandfather, the view in V4 is one I know best. Also used to go fishing off the wall there, happy times. Along to the right was a large rock with pink alabaster on it, still have some of it in my mineral collecton. Some good fossils to be had along this bit of the coast also, thanks so much for posting.

Hi John, yes the alabaster is still there, and people find really good fossils along the beach from there to Kilve, which is another good fossil-hunters location. Fishing still happens off the wall a lot in summer, very popular. Nice place to fish, with that view! Dave

Kilve is one of my favorite fossil hunting grounds, spent a week on the beach there a couple of years back collecting them after a week down in Dorset doing the same. I recon you must know my Grandparents old house, is called Billbrook Lodge which is near a very long ford. Billbrook is on the Minehead road, there house was down a right turn to the ford.

Sounds like you frequented Dorset's Lyme Regis coast, John. Once when I was about 14 (nearly 50 years ago.....time more than flies..) I found an ammonite there in some grey shale, which was too big for my bruv, my dad, and myself to carry back. Well over 2ft diameter and still inset in its grey rock. In those days they just got left there for someone else to find if anyone couldn't carry them. I always wished I'd managed to get it back home, but no doubt it ended up with some fossil enthusiasts older and beefier than a 14 year old! Fun times....

Great series. Might be my eyes but is the horizon on No1 a bit on the tilt ??.
