    A selection of the shots I got last weekend on the Dorset coast. I got really lucky with the weather with sunshune on both days. As always comments and criticism welcome.

    Finally a few at dawn at West Bay near Bridport

    not technically the best but better than any other gull shots I tried to take. I never realised exactly how difficult it is to take shots of moving birds. I take my hat off to those that get them sharp.

    Another slow shutter speed rock shot. The light was a lot lower so this was much easier to capture. Didn't even have to resort to the ND filter for this one.

    Finally I think my favourite of the weekend. I was absoilutely freezing by this point at around -1 with no gloves. I could barely feel the button to take the shot.

    Hope you like them :)

    Nice, the first ones you cant name are Durdle Door, firstly looking over Man O War and then @ durdle dar its self.

    The other one you are unsure of is indeed lulworth cove, however its not a pic of the cove its self, its of stair hole which is to the west of lulworth by about 250 yards! :)

    Cheers for the comments guys.

    Yep, you have a point. I kept them in the shot on purpose to give it a bit of scale but looking again it doesn't really need it.

    Personally mate i really like them all. They are all different (photographically) and each i find really interesting. I cant see anything wrong with them technically. Good work mate. :)
