Old Harry Rocks

My first visit to old Harry Rocks, Studland, along the Jurassic Coast was in total darkness but thanks to some good research and a torch I arrived without incident. For me this site was quite a challenge, as I had a real fear of heights and the drop off the edge is straight down. My tripod was within 2 feet of the edge, that was close enough for me! I used my Fuji XT2 with 10-24 f4 lens and a 3 stop Graduated filter with 6 stop ND . My aim was to achieve a soft etherial atmosphere with slightly muted colours. Luckily the cloud structure was about right and blended really well into the horizon. 

The history of Old Harry Rocks comes from a legend that says the local, infamous pirate Harry Paye use to hide his ship behind the rocks awaiting passing merchantmen. There are several others but I quite like this one. 

I was pleased with the end result and it was well worth getting up at 4 o'clock for.
