Having seen a myriad of images of Durdle Door and Kimmeridge Bay I wasn't too disappointed to find that to get to these places require required not only determination and physical stamina, but some deep pockets full of two pound coins and assorted other change. The parking charges in and around London pale into insignificance when motoring along a Dorset coastline. One needs to factor this in when planning a holiday to this part of the world. Needless to say I haven't added to the number of images that have been taken of the two above popular sites that attract so many photographers.
Now what usually attracts the photographic eye when by the briny? Definitely sunrises and sunsets, more recently a groyne surrounded by milky water after using a 10 stop ND filter, if a lighthouse is in the vicinity that's a must, fishing boats either floating at high tide or on their sides at low tide and for the sports photographer wind and kite surfers. All this was available to me at Bournemouth and regions adjacent, come to think of it though I can't recall a lighthouse anywhere.
What I found intriguing was spending a couple of hours on a clifftop car park, looking down on a sparsely populated beach and promenade with lampposts dotted along at regular intervals. Not only was the car park free, even more satisfying, but trying to make pictures of very little the most satisfying of all,
..and break rules along the way.
