Trip to Port Mulgrave

Trip to Port Mulgrave

Port Mulgrave is famous for being one of the most popular Jurassic sites in the UK. It is a site of special scientific interest & is now looked after and protected by the National Trust.

It was still dark when we started to walk down the path. We soon found out that path has been closed. So ve decided to jump the barrier and carry on…  🙂

Almost immediately I started to look for compositions. It seems like  I can shoot the waves all day because I love the sea. There was a promise of sunrise light, so I quickly set up my camera and waited for best of it.

Once the best light was gone, I took out my trusty X-Pro1 and started to walk around. It is very interesting, but strange place. Full of interest.

Fisherman huts are delightfully weird and I found myself thinking about what stories they would tell If they could.

I wandered around the place and took series of photos of hut doors and locks. Certainly, the mosaic they create describes the place rather well.

Apparently, the place is full of the fossils. Therefore I took the opportunity and searched the beach for them. I guess I was lucky 🙂
