Lyme Regis ia a popular resort on the South Coast on the border between Dorset and Devon. It’s well-known for The Cobb – a man-made stone projection into the sea that protects the harbour and was first built centuries ago. It is most famous for featuring in the film ‘The French Lieutenant’s Woman’.
Walking out onto The Cobb is a ‘must’ for any visitor to Lyme. I’ve walked that walk quite a few times over the years but never in the right conditions for a great photograph. We were in Lyme just recently for a family get together. It was baking hot. The Cobb was not likely to be photogenic, but views from it across the harbour were worth the walk.
This was one of the images I captured of little boats in the harbour. According to the normal rules of composition, odd numbers of objects are regarded as preferable to even numbers. Unfortunately the boats were not thus aligned., but I thought this was an attractive composition nevertheless.
