The old caravan

Dungeness. I love the surreal landscapes around this stretch of Kent coast.

Soon as I saw this I thought it has to be Dungeness. It is a wonderfully strange place that is like nowhere else in the UK
John Prior: I totally agree, thanks Bill

It looks as isolated as our desert out west in America, John! And just as beautiful, I might add!
John Prior: Not quite as large, but very interesting, cheers Ginnie

It may be fading but just look at that lichen and those valerian plants blooming away in full colour John!
John Prior: A garden designer would would be hard pressed to match it, thanks Chris
The really captures the bleakness of Dungeness. Yet with those flowers and old timbers in the foreground, it is probably someone's property. I love to visit Dungeness, but I have to admire those who chose to live there.
John Prior: Thanks Sheila, yes it is a place apart with great character.

John Prior: Thanks Linda
What a lonely spot ... thought it was Texas!!!
John Prior: Not quite as big, but it does have a frontier feel to it, thanks Crash.
One less to be stuck behind! Great picture.
John Prior: Very true, mind you there are plenty of other things to get stuck behind. Cheers.
I have never been here but it always looks to be a photographers paradise. That caravan has seen better days.
John Prior: Yes a well photographed area, the coast and lifestyles always provide good material
Has a slightly surreal feel to it
John Prior: Cheers Max

a fantastic balance of light and color. i like the contrast of fresh flowers and the aged structures.
Wonderful shot John and once again some fantastic colours and texture, looks quite remote.
