Description

Charmouth coastline

Charmouth is a village at the mouth of the River Char in West Dorset, England. The village has a population of 1,687 according to the 2001 census. The cliffs above the beach are well-known for Jurassic fossils. Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre acts as a visitor centre for the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and identifies fossils found in the area. Walkers and fossil-hunters walk the beaches between Lyme Regis and Charmouth but have to be wary of tides and landslips. The walk between Charmouth and Lyme Regis is well worth it if you time the tides correctly. Finding fossils is NOT easy as the landslips are well picked over. There is a huge ammonite (about a metre across), in a large rock, under Church Cliffs. Description from Wikipedia.

That's a great shot, too. I love the mist in the distance.
