About this book

Please note that this book is available as a regular edition measuring 25 × 25 cm, and a physically smaller souvenir edition measuring 17 × 17 cm.

Many publications highlight the beauty of this area, both from land and air, but this is the first to feature photographs shot entirely from the coast's best viewpoint – the sea. Few people are fortunate enough to spend time on Dorset's coastal waters, but Dorset from the Sea enables everyone to appreciate what it's like to be 'out there looking in'. Enjoy a boat tour with a photographer plainly in love with his home turf (or should that be surf?).

Enjoy the majesty of West Dorset's sandstone cliffs glowing orange at sunset, the 18 miles of Chesil Beach pebbles and the harsh beauty of Portland, source of the stone that built London. Cruise across Weymouth Bay with its myriad water users, from jetskiers to 100,000-tonne tankers (not to mention the dolphins). In Purbeck, appreciate outside views of famous Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove, the shale cliffs around Kimmeridge and the quarries beyond St Alban's Head. Finally, get up close and personal with Old Harry and his family, the stunning chalk stacks that form the easternmost, and youngest, stretch of the Jurassic Coast.
