  1. Heading off to Dungeness on Monday for a bit of photography. Want to try out the new camera with some long exposure images. This one is from the last time I was there.

    That first picture is just beautiful.

    Karma for relaxing me after a hectic day in work.

    We've always dreamed of going to Dungeness. Mainly to see Derek Jarman's garden. It's now definitely on the list of camping spots for 2013...possibly Easter as it'll take us a week to get there from Liverpool!
    While you are there could you let us now if you find any campsites that are half decent and really close to the beach?
     
  7. The sky in the second picture is stunning just stunning!! Nice work fella!
     
  8. It is worth wondering around Dungeness. You can see Derek Jarman's garden but it is quite small. A lot of the gardens have items that have been found on the beach! A friend camped in the car park by the old Dungeness lighthouse and was not moved on and he said the cafe did a good breakfast. We have stayed at this camp site in the past and found it to be very good: Canterbury Camping and Caravanning Club Site, Bekesbourne Lane, Canterbury, Kent, CT3 4AB. There is a bus into Canterbury that stops near the camp site. We have also stayed at a site in Pevensey which is a bit further away but just across a quiet road to the sea.

    Great shots and in black and white , its the way to go
     
  11. Like the pics :) Derek Jarmans garden is "interesting" doesn't need much imagination :)) Norwood Farm at Newchurch is a good spot to stay ...about 10 to 15mins run time to Dungeness.
     
  12. Great photos, Dungeness is certainly a surreal world.
