Body painter Mark Gannon created the art work of the iconic landscapes – including Durdle Door, Portland Bill Lighthouse, Golden Cap and Sandford Castle – on faces, backs and bottoms.
'I liked the sound of him and he has been brilliant,' said 61-year-old Cheryl Reynolds, who came up with the idea.
'He's come up with loads of ideas for the calendar and nothing has ever been too much for him.
'I had a sabre tooth tiger fossil on my bottom and I was lying there for two hours while he painted it.
'We are all up for a laugh and to raise a bit of money for charity and have some fun.
'That's what it's all about,' added Mrs Reynolds, from Lyme Regis, Dorset.
The Jurassic Coast is a World Heritage Site and stretches from Orcombe Point near Exmouth in East Devon to Old Harry Rocks near Swanage in East Dorset, a distance of 153km (95 miles).

PemaQuid Lighthouse, Maine

This is an image from my New England fall tour this year which took me to Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, New York, and Mass. This particular image is from Maine along the coast. One of the better known lighthouses called Pemaquid Lighthouse. I know this place has been shot alot but when you are from the West Coast and you never seen this place it is quite something with lots of possibilities.

Portland Head Lighthouse Maine

I am sorry for posting another one that a million people have shot but I was so happy to finally see the lighthouse that I have been seeing everywhere for the last couple of years. This is of course Portland Head Lighthouse in Maine.

Point Atkinson-Lighthouse Park -Vancouver

The following image is from a trip to see my family in West Vancouver. It is amazing that I had a lighthouse like this in my backyard and was not even aware of it until I got into photography few years ago. It is funny to think I travelled hundreds of miles to shoot the Portland Lighthouse in Maine and this one right next to me was almost forgotten.
I guess it is always important to see what is in your backyard...

I took several different compositions of this and did an article on how to work a scene in terms of composition on my photo blog which can be seen with the link below

Peggy's Cove Lighthouse Nova Scotia

This is an image from my fall trip to Canada. This infamous lighthouse is called Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia. I was fortunate enough to spend three days here shooting several sunrises and sunsets. This is one of the most stunning lighthouses I have seen in my lifetime.
