Photographer's Note

An old shot from about a year ago, when I first moved to digital. This is Durdle Door, a very famous natural landmark on Dorset's Jurassic Coast. It is a much photographed location and so proves a difficult challenge to gain a fresh approach. For this shot I wanted to make the arch less dominant, but still very much the focus of the picture. I moved back and went wide angle to catch the waves lapping against the shore. I liked the idea of having the arch just occupy a quarter of the picture and so positioned it top left of the composition. I waited an hour or so for the light to turn golden. When it did, I made the most of it, because only a few minutes afterwards, the sun (still far from setting) disappeared behind the towering cliffs behind me.
