Clavell’s Pier, Kimmeridge

Reference: DO250
Location: Dorset
Gallery: Dorset,

With shots like this I usually look for the rocks to be wet and dark and so a falling tide is best. It’s tricky to find a position where the rocks are nicely surrounded by swirling water but still exposed enough to register in a long exposure. I also aim to balance the image by ensuring that there are some prominent rocks in the bottom left hand corner. This view looks north west and so can be a good location for summer sunset colour although we only had a hint on this evening.
