I entered my first ever photography competition lured by the prospect of winning the prize of 100% of Alamy fees for a year ( no commission). This was the Open Oxford Photocall 2017 and the theme ‘Conceal/Reveal’
This is my entry:
Now, obviously I didn’t win. But I was selected as one of the 20 panel of expert choices. The prize is having a framed print exhibited in Oxford.
This rivals Durdle Door as a favourite for schools in England, perhaps all of the United Kingdom. One of the pictures is the classic view from on top of the cliffs showing the succession in headland erosion – enlarged joints, cave, arch, stack, stump. The other is from the sea ( look out for the kayaker to give scale) looking at the cliff face with Old Harry on the extreme right. Below is a link to a 4 minute BBC Bitesize video explaining all about the processes and landforms.

Possibly the most northerly bus shelter in Britain. Somebody goes to a lot of trouble to create this colour themed furnishing! This was a few years ago so no doubt the current colour of the moment is something different.

Probably the most famous coastal landform in Britain? Durdle Door natural arch.
Durdle Door is formed from a layer of Portland limestone standing almost vertically out in the sea. Normally layers of limestone would be horizontal. Only the most fundamental force in geology could have altered these rocks in this way – plate tectonics.
