For those who want go get as close to the real Lawrence as possible, and gain some insight into this enigmatic figure, his home Clouds Hill is open to the public. Below is a gallery of photos from a recent visit. I was worried it would be too dark inside for my widest lens, but on a sunny day and with a reasonable ISO I was able to photograph the entire four rooms in good detail and capture the comfortable mood of his reading room and music room.
On the bottom floor is the reading room with the books he would have read but not the original ones and the bathroom. On the top floor is the music room and the tin foil lined bathroom. One of my favourite things about the visit was learning how much of the fixtures and fittings were custom made by local crafts people to be as comfortable as possible for Lawrence. Visiting Clouds Hill helped to dispel some of the mystery surrounding Lawrence, especially the circumstances surrounding his death.
Osmington Mills at dawn. We parked the car in the nearby picturesque village of Symondsbury and walked up the footpath to the view points of the hill. I think a bit more blue sky would have produced better shots but it was still a lovely walk. Colmers Hill and surrounding countryside.

That evening, we headed to Kimmeridge Bay which wasn't actually on my list at all, but this beach was apparently great for sunset photography. The trend of the trip continued and cloudy skies had moved in again so nice colourful sunset shots were out of the question, but to my surprise the dark clouds worked tremendously well with the location and I was able to get some dramatic shots. Despite the threatening skies, it was very calm and peaceful, like the calm before the storm. It felt like I was standing on a remote, rugged Scandinavian coast, miles from anyone and then I turned around to find a family cooking dinner on a BBQ.
I hope they didn't get rained on! I think this was my favourite place of the trip. Stormy skies at Kimmeridge Bay.

We had a walk around Poole and then Sandbanks before heading over to Old Harry Rocks and the Pinnacles for a bit of photography. These chalk formations mark the most easterly point of the Jurassic Coast. We visited Corfe Castle that evening; I had planned to visit here one morning in the hope that some mist would be present but with the cloudy conditions I altered the plans and headed here for some sunset shots.
