Rock... me gently

By marktc  
Thought of a couple of titles for this, "Road to nowhere", "rock the boat" but decided to go for the title of an old Andy Kim song from 1974.... "Rock me gently" , so for all those of a certain age a little nostalgia for you.

The bay to the east of Kimmeridge in Dorset is littered with these huge chunks of rock, many containing large ammonites which would have made terrific images, but given the prevailing weather (bright sunlight, yes BRIGHT SUNLIGHT), it wasn't possible to capture them. So this wonderful rock formation sweeps off into the distance, the only downside was the patch of seaweed that makes it look untidy.

Anyway, here it is for your consumption. I hope you enjoy it!

A rather beautiful photograph depicting this rather gorgeous coastal scene, so full of natural colour, detail, and warming light.

A Rocky Road.. but maybe not to Dublin. The wide angle comes into its own here, Mark, and lovely tones despite the harsh sunlight.
