Pebble pictures: Multi-coloured and patterned pebbles made of broken flint from the sandy seashore at Studland Bay, Dorset, Uk on the Jurassic Coast world Heritage Site. 

The ordinary and ubiquitous flint and chert stones beneath our feet can be beautiful if we only stop to look. Flint abounds on the seashores of the Jurassic Coast in Dorset.  It assumes many shapes and colours – white, grey, black, orange, and brown. When it breaks, it reveals a never-ending variety of patterns and designs which are interesting and decorative. This photograph shows an assortment of small broken flint stones picked up on a walk along Studland Bay.
