Another shot from Saturdays trip to Mupe in Dorset. This is about 5 minutes after the other, as the pinkiness in the sky intensified and the tide rose some more. These rock ledges stretch over to distant Worbarrow Bay. They are part of the same diagonal strata (is that the word?) that forms the Lulworth Cove cliffs, Stair Hole and Durdle Door, all of which are only a couple of miles away. Absolutely incredible geology - anyone who has an interest in this subject simply must visit this stretch of coast if you are able to. I know little of geology, but I simply am fascinated by it all the same.

yes its an amazing place alright Adam ,how rock has been almost turned upwards is incerdible when you think of the force behind it .The strata lines are everywhere along this coast ,showing the different sediment layers very clearly .AND
Looks like someone got wet feet by the look of it ,very nice lines in your composition and nice effect on the water surface .

A great shot to project as an example of changing land topography..my mom would be fascinated as she once taught geography and a bit of geology..indeed an incredible phenomenon..perfect layers and depth..the exposure is right too..diff to adjust during receeding light..youve done a great job here

Another great shot. I have a question for you - how do you manage to balance the light so well? Usually I get the foreground too dark or background too bright when shooting at sunset/sunrise. I do use the Hitech 0.9ND but I am still having problems... Are those rocks in the last rays of sun or are they already in the shadow? Thanks for reply.

Adam I can't anything but admire again. Last week i decided to wake up very early on sunday morning, i checked the weather forecast, tides and i even checked with a copmpas the position of the sun at the time when i get there during the week...so I woke up at 5:45 on sunday morning, got changed, put a cattle on to make a tea, went to bathroom, got back, got a tea and equipment ready and looked out of the window...and it was lashing raining...you can imagine how annoyed i was coz the location i was heading to looked quite similar to the one seen on this photo. So maybe next saturday or sunday and i'll be able to upload similar quality photograph:)
Anyway, thanks for your reply about Lee filters. I have to consider this upgrade later. They are very expensive especialy when bought with CPL.
Best regards, keep shoting*

These really are intriguing rock formations and quite varied in colour. I like the strong sharpness in the first one and how it contrasts with the ice-like water. It's elongated form creates so much depth too. The soft pink like is very pretty.

A very striking image with stunning colors in the evening sky. Very impressive shimmer effect on the water (as I see in many of your images. The diagonals created by the rocks has significant impact. A fine work and TFS. Gerald

Love the strong diagnols. Beautiful pastels.

Betterer and betterer, as the saying goes! Am I right in thinking you've got an Antarctica trip coming up soon? If so, can't wait to see your photographic results from that magical place............
Love your work, mate!

Great shot. I think I like this one more than your first post of this area. Good strong diagonal lines.

Delightful, it looks like a faraway planet from a science fiction film. Great balance of sharp and soft, also cool and warm colours.

perfect... like all you works!

I'm spending too much time reading your magazine (amongst others) and not enough time on TE!
It's the broken up lines that really make this shot work for me. The forground rock is strong enough (no punn intended)that it makes for a great subject with ideal compositional placement (rule of thirds). Level horizon- which is always vital to such shots. I like the coastal range which leads nicely to the corner of the frame. Great colors and shadows detail Adam.
I was recently in Phuket, shooting with the EXACT same kit (although zoomed all the way back). I found quite a bit of lens distortion- do you ever find the same with such shots?
All the best,

great shot form Dorset, colours are amazingly soft and all image transmits a great peacefulness. I love the rocks in the foreground, they look so sharp and 'clean'.
Very good job.

A marvelous nature picture exactly the way I like them to be. It is not specified at what time you took the picture but because of this pink sky I would presume that you woke up early in the morning. I don't see the exposure but because of the effect on the water I would say about a second or slightly more. The result is great a deserves to become a lovely poster.
Friendly regards - Izzet Keribar

Very hight quanlity of pic as same as you took all. I am very crazy about pink sky and slow shutter effect. Yes, I have a plan to visit UK in this summer, maybe get time to visit here. TFS!

Like you I love the Dorset coast, and know this area well (though mostly from out to sea). This is, I believe, looking East: is this dawn or the reflected light of evening I wonder. I'm assuming a very long shutter speed, and therefore guessing you used an ND filter: sadly the Photo Info panel doesn't tell us. But this is a beautiful composition, particularly the diagonal strata slicing across the frame. A classic.
