The Cobb in Lyme Regis has been protecting the town from the sea since at least 1313. It is a fascinating structure, full of history and memory. It is also a wonderful place to overlook the Jurassic Coast. On a clear day the view stretches right over to Portland Bill, some 25 miles distant as the crow flies.
On this particular October morning, I awoke before sunrise to a patch of cloud drifting in. I made myself a flask of tea, picked up the camera and drove down to Lyme Regis to see if anything would come of it.
The sunrise I was confronted with knocked me sideways. Slowly the sky changed from a dull grey to a vivid florescent blaze, so intense that I could barely believe my luck.
Consequently, this remains one of my favourite Lyme Regis pictures.
