These incredibly coloured and magnificently patterned rocks, with such a variety of different textures, were photographed on the cliffs at Worbarrow Bay, Dorset, UK, on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. The wonderful rich orange, red and purple hues are caused by the iron minerals they contain.
