Photographer's Note

Old Harry Rocks is a beautiful stretch of high Chalk cliffs, with promontories, sea stacks and natural arches. It can be viewed from the South West Coast Path on the cliff top, walking from Studland or Swanage, or by boat.

Personally I walked there from the Swanage. The path from the city gives an opportunity to see more spectacular views so it is really worthwile to have a 2 hours walk.

The chalk cliffs in the Harry Rocks, Ballard Point area are of a very dangerous and vertical type in many cases with no sloping transition and often as abrupt as the edge of a tall building. These are not sloping cliffs from which one might survive a fall, but the hazard is completely obvious and the main footpath generally stays clear of the danger. The sensible adult walker need not be at any risk, but care should be taken especially in bad weather.I had really nice one so I could enjoy my trip.

Actually i don`t like this shot too much because of the imperfect framing. Now i know I should keep the grassy foreground in focus or throw it away from the frame at all.

Anyway, I can`t find any other picture from this place and other pictures from Dorset from my 2004 trip (dunno why). I hope i`ll find them soon...
