Dungeness, Kent

Dungeness is a special place. It has no boundaries; it's a desolate landscape punctuated by wooden homes, lighthouses, boats, power stations, and gravel pits. When you arrive, a vast expanse of shingle beach greets you. At first glance it looks barren and bleak. When you look closer, you discover it's teeming with life.

Dungeness is a remarkable landscape home to a variety of wildlife and over 600 types of plant. The flooded gravel pits are an important refuge for migratory and coastal birds, and the Dungeness Reserve attracts and provides a home for rare species.

On the day I took a trip out to Dungeness, the sun was shockingly bright. I had to traverse the shingle with one hand shielding my eyes. The colour of the landscape popped against the harsh shadows, making every feature of the headland, from its weathered boards to the thirsty vegetation, look intense.

If you get the chance, it's very much worth a visit to Dungeness.
