TOP OF A WALL

Top of a wall - white shapes against a blue sky

Hi, Adrian. It's one of those cases where detail is better than substance. The wall is pretty ugly in real life. I'd go as far as to say it reaches eye-sore status. But . . . taken from low down against a blue sky etc. . . . there's something special after all. I'm not clear if I'm seeing something the designer intended - or something more than is really there.

Thanks, Manu Tyagi.

Whatever it is Lucy, you have certainly caught it.

Hello Toffeeapple. Maybe, some time, I should go back and take a picture of the whole.

Like the huge stone remains of an ancient civilisation in the desert...

Hello Squirrelbasket. In a way you are spot on. This wall is protecting a special arrangement which allows water to flow under the mountain of Chesil Beach stones from the sea into Portland Harbour rather than come over or knock holes in it. Although the area is very 'scenic' when viewed from above - behind the nothing-but-stones-ness of Chesil Beach it's very desert-like.

I like the stark simplicity of colour and the extremes of texture I.e stone versus sky. Looks like a location from a sci-fi set.
