Photographer's Note

The struggle between sea and shore is especially scenic in southern England, where thousands of years of seawater led erosion has left behind a series of stunning rock formations. Many of the best formations can be found in a region known as the Jurassic Coast, including the beautiful, oyster-shaped Lulworth Cove. The cove was formed nearly 10,000 years ago, after seawaters broke through its portland entrance and fanned out in a perfect horseshoe shape. Once inside, the seawater found it harder to erode through chalk cliffs, though it does continue to eat into them languidly. At low tide, the waters reveal an attractive pebble beach ringing the cove, which in summer attracts droves of tourists - for obvious reasons.
