Dorset villages and landscapes

The latest image will always be the first in the gallery, as well as the 'representative image'.

Most of these pictures were taken on days off in my birth county of Dorset. We now live in the adjoining county of Somerset, but love to explore Dorset's coastline and villages whenever we get the chance. All the pictures in this gallery were taken with my Nikon D70. I hope you enjoy it!
