Portland Dorset

Yesterday I met up with some Flickr friends for the day. (Flickr is a photo sharing group) We spent the early evening at Portland. In the Above photo we are looking down on the Chesil beach
its a very Bleak landscape
The evening light , with cloudy skies, but some sunshine made for some good photo opportunities

We all enjoyed meeting up and hope to do it a gain soon.
One of the highlights of the trip was not caught on Camera. Whilst we were having a cup of coffee, someone spotted a small speck hovering high in the cloud. We watched for several minutes and saw it was a peregrine .......Having spotted his supper, he suddenly dropped down below the cliffs at an unbelievable speed. It was well worth seeing.
