Kimmeridge Bay at silly o’clock

Follow me on Social Media

First post of the year and it’s June already. Amongst other things, Covid and lock downs have been quite the motivation killer but having to take a week’s leave or loose it before the end of June had me determined to go out somewhere decent with my camera.

I have a friend who lives near Bournemouth which is a hop skip and a jump to Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, so I chose to go to Kimmeridge Bay at silly o’clock to spend the morning and then on to visit my friend.

I went to bed at 4 pm and set the alarm to midnight. I was on my way at 1 am and arrived at Kimmeridge Bay around 3.45 am. First light was at 4.10 am and sunrise 4.55 am, so I had blue hour and sunrise to shoot in.

I had the place all to myself and could hear nothing but the sound of very gentle waves and the dawn chorus of the local birdlife. I left about 6.45 am shortly after golden hour stopped giving colour to the sky and did not see another soul for the time I was there.

It felt good to be there and I titled my favourite of the day, “Serenity” to reflect the mood of my surroundings.

Love to hear your comments below, thanks for reading!
