Dungeness

Returned to Dungeness in Kent with a friend, Simon, who loves bird watching. Spotted a few egrets and lapwings (Haven’t mastered the art of looking through binoculars and sketching yet!)  Dungeness is great for bird watching and a strangely appealing place with it’s shingle beach and power station. It’s photographers heaven here with it’s exposed landscape and abandoned, weather worn boats and huts. We walked to the top of the Old Lighthouse and I sketched the view towards Romney Hythe. I looked out at the miniature railway and sketched the fisherman’s cottages and electricity pylons that scatter the landscape.

We wandered around Derek Jarmans, Prospect Cottage too. I did a quick sketch of the plants, driftwood and scrap metal sculptures in the garden.
