For a photographer the Jurassic Coast really is a dream location to live

The Dorset and East Devon Coastline, also known as the ‘Jurassic Coast’, runs along the English Channel from the red cliffs of Exmouth in the west up to the limestone of the Purbeck peninsula near the town of Poole in Dorset. The Jurassic Coast is a geological and archaeological timeline of the history of the earth, spanning the Triassic, the Jurassic and the Cretaceous periods, and on this coastline they are formed as a continuous sequence which means that you can literally walk through time – from one period to the next – covering 185 million years in 155 km.

A landscape photographer’s dream

Daniel Wretham is a photographer from Dorset. The Jurassic Coast is his main interest, this is where he feels at home and at his most creative. He is indeed lucky to have such a fantastic stretch of coastline with so many features to shoot. Even without a camera he loves to walk along it and just take in the sights and feel of the place. For a photographer the Jurassic Coast really is heaven and a dream location to live.
