My First Photo In Print

Thanks to Tom Munro, a Dorset AONB Countryside Officer, I had my first photo published in print recently… An innocuous photo taken on a walk down in Dorset of a field of wheat and poppies was chosen to illustrate an article about an area in Dorset known as The South Dorset Ridgeway.

Here are a few more photos from Dorset and Somerset taken in July 2007.

Hardy's Monument, Black Down, Portesham, Dorset, UK

~ Hardy’s Monument, Black Down, Portesham, Dorset, UK ~


A popular view point, centered on a 72 foot high Portland Stone tower commemorating Admiral Sir Thomas Masterman Hardy (1769-1839) the Flag Captain of HMS Victory at the Battle of Trafalgar ("Kiss me, Hardy"), not the novelist. Hardy lived at Portesham until 1781 when he entered the navy and the monument was erected in 1844, after his death. The monument has recently been restored by the National Trust and is open to the public on summer weekends.
