I can see myself sunbathing on a towel in front of that view. Nice photo.

There is so much to see in this lovely photo. I was mesmerized--thanks for sharing!

That sky is HUGE! Look at how tiny the boats look in comparison... very, very nice!

Tara R. August 14, 2009 at 1:06 AM  

Wonderful skyscape. Such a vast vista.

J Bar August 14, 2009 at 2:09 AM  

Good one.

Lovely view and sky.

My what a great big sky you have!
The better to share the view with I am sure.
Fantastic sweeping photo, thanks for sharing!

I feel the urge for a mr whippy coming one!

Lovely - I know it well - was born in Weymouth and still visit occasionally.

Hello Koala.

The shore along here is lined by little coves. Very peaceful.

Hello Nonizamboni.

It's interesting how such an apparently empty view can contain so much!

Hello Ms Toast Burner (what a wonderful name!) . . .

At first, I was surprised by your comment. Isn't the sky always the same size and always huge?

Then I realised how used I am to having an unobstructed view of it and how, in a forest or a city, one sees little scraps of it . . . instead of more or less all of it at once.

Comments like yours help me value the ordinary by reminding me that one person's 'ordinary' is another person's 'exception'.

Tara R.

Yes, a large vista, indeed . . . and more to the left and more to the right . . . but not the biggest round here!

3c August 14, 2009 at 12:02 PM  

Thanks J.Bar.

3c August 14, 2009 at 12:04 PM  

Thanks Regina. I'm glad you like the view across Portland Harbour.

With a view like this, the sea and the sky often merge.

3c August 14, 2009 at 12:05 PM  

Hello Uberrhund.

I'm really pleased to be sharing this view in a blog - but if we all tried to look at it in 'real life' it would get a bit crowed . . . then it wouldn't be the same at all!

Hello J.

No icecreams on the beach I'm afraid. It's all little 'Famous Five' style coves along here.

There's a park with ice-creams not too far away though - with the ruins of a Henry lll castle in it. Not bad, eh?

Hello Strawberry Ann Jam. (Another good name!)

How nice to be visited by someone from Weymouth!

Do you miss it or is your new coast a fine compensation?

Bim August 14, 2009 at 12:31 PM  

This looks like Sunday afternoon joy :)

Monica the Garden Faerie August 14, 2009 at 12:38 PM  

Ooh, landscape mode, cool!

3c August 14, 2009 at 12:41 PM  

Hello Bim.

It is. It's an any day . . . any time of day . . . any weather joy.

3c August 14, 2009 at 12:41 PM  

Hello Monica.

Landscape for a seascape . . .

Hildegarde August 14, 2009 at 11:08 PM  

That's very beautiful and soft, staying within one color : the blue (with of course white), eye-candy.

3c August 17, 2009 at 8:48 PM  

Hello Hildegarde.

Sorry to take so long to reply.

Glad you like the view across Portland Harbour.

I like photos which are based on one colour. I think this springs from my first love - which is black and white photography. I'm not quite sure why I don't do more of that!
