Another view of the Jurassic Coast
Situated on the English Channel, the Jurassic Coast consists of cliffs from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, documenting 180 million years.
It was in this place, considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, that the marine biologist Andrew Pearson decided to take a series of photographs that reveal the sea floor framed in the landscape of the beach.
“People do not always realize what’s in the water just a few feet off the British coast and that can be a wonderful thing,” the photographer explains. “I try to capture photos that portray the dramatic and wild nature of the British seas and coastlines.”
These photographs were taken in Kimmeridge Bay. Pearson says many people are astonished when he says the pictures were representing the British coast and not any tropical site – and that so the British can give more value to their own natural heritage.
“I love the English south, which is very varied and interesting. It’s where I like to be in my spare time, “Pearson said.
