I have always loved the coastline of the south-west of England, with it's dramatic cliffs and beautiful beaches. I especially love the interaction of the sunlight on the water, and the play of reflected light on the cliffs and beaches.

I am an amateur photographer, and use only a simple digital camera. I do not edit or enhance my pictures digitally, they simply show what is there, which is the natural beauty that is presented to me by my environment.

Sunshine and the sea are recurring themes throughout many of my photographs, so I thought it would be nice to bring some of the best pictures together in a photo gallery for HubPages.

I hope you enjoy it.

      Your photographs are really beautiful. Their colors are subtle yet rich, and they have a silky look and feel to them. Lovely!

      What beautiful photos you take! Of course you have some great subject matter with the sun glistening off of the sea and the beach scenery. Looks lovely! Perhaps with luck, someday I will get to venture over to your part of the world. In the meantime, I'll enjoy your photos. Voted up and beautiful.

      Thank you movie master - I hope you enjoy your visit to dorset. I have another hub on good places to visit if you're interested.

      Eliza - although I enjoyed "On Chesil Beach" I was a little disappointed that the beach didn't actually feature much in the book! Glad you liked the photos

      thanks both for commenting :)
