Pictures from an Isle of Portland Walk – Part 2

View from the cliff-top coastal path on the west coast of the Isle of Portland

This is the second stage of my walk around the Isle of Portland in Dorset, U.K. I continued to follow the cliff-top coastal path on the west coast of the island, pausing occasionally to look back along the steep cliffs towards the northern end where Chesil Beach joins it to the mainland. Sometimes, I peered cautiously over the edge to the precipitous layered rocks and steep rockfalls where sea birds in niches peered back at me, and where souls more foolhardy than I clambered down to the shore below. Other times, I kept my foot and my eye turned towards the southern tip of the isle as I admired the details of crumbling fractured rocks capping the vertical cliffs upon which, by comparison, the buildings seemed like miniature models.
