Heading West of Lyme Regis along the Jurassic Coast, i see some lovely large ammonites. The attrition of the sand and sea wears away these' grand old 'fossil ammonites daily.I enjoy doing a little and large comparison of the ammonites i find. The small "metallic looking" ammonites i find are great to keep,these are from Seven Rock Point. I leave the big ammonites for others to see where they belong.Its very pleasurable to see the moss waterfall at Pinhay Bay-it seems other -worldly.The beautiful calm evening is 'dream like' on this gorgeous coastal fossil walk.http://www.lymeregisfossilwalks.com There is a fossil collecting code of conduct in operation along this stretch of the Jurassic Coast.The cliffs along this stretch are liable to fall suddenely and without warning .Its best to attend the beach at low tide and keep away from the dangerous cliffs.
Fantastic Fossil Photos On Instagram .
A few weeks ago i joined Instagram.This is a service that allows users to share pictures and videos either publicly or privately.A good number of "fossilists"have shared some wonderful photographs of their fossil finds on Instagram.
Recently i uploaded an ammonite nodule,i had found when out fossil collecting.The fossil is filmed with the round part of the nodule showing in my hand.I then flip the stone over to reveal the ammonite inside the stone.I stipulate in the video description that" i can`t believe its flipping Thursday already."Its certainly true the weeks just fly by these days.The ammonite flipping phase certainly seems to be growing on Instagram every Thursday.If the trend continues in the next weeks the Fossil Flip Thursday Hashtag should see a lot more entries.
I have told people that flipping your fossil over a bed or cushion is good practice.Luckily so far i have managed to catch all my fossil specimens.Please follow us on Instagram @brandonfossils and you can see all our fossil videos there.The video directly below this text is one of the nodules that i have also shared on YouTube for people to view.
I am a fossil walk guide on the jurassic coast.
