Hello, Everyone! Today's featured photography is of 'Durdle Dor', a limestone formation that looks like a dinosaur drinking water! Here's a bit more information about this limestone 'dinosaur':
"Durdle Door (sometimes written Durdle Dor) is a natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast near Lulworth in Dorset, England. It is privately owned by the Welds, a family who owns 12,000 acres (50 km2) in Dorset in the name of the Lulworth Estate. It is open to the public. The name Durdle is derived from the Old English 'thirl' meaning bore or drill.
The Ron Dawson's children's story Scary Bones meets the Dinosaurs of the Jurassic Coast creates a myth of how Durdle Door came to be, as an 'undiscovered' dinosaur called Durdle Doorus magically transformed into rock." ~ Wikipedia/Durdle_Door
This is Durdle Dor/Door the natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast near Lulworth in Dorset, England. Doesn't it look like a dinosaur drinking water?
|Here's another gorgeous view of the beach and a few appetizers, oops, I mean tourists, viewing the limestone 'dinosaur'.|
|'Durdle Doorus', the 'dinosaur' has had a lot of visitors it seems, according to the feet-like impressions in the sand.|
|In this photo it looks as if the 'dinosaur' has closed its eye (on this side, of course) while it drinks water. Also, it seems to have a content look on its face, as if the appetizers were, delicious!|
