The lo­ca­tion

Digital Photo (UK) - - PLANET PHOTO -

Dur­dle Door is a World Her­itage site on the south coast of the UK. Famed for the nat­u­ral stone arch, Dur­dle Door is a Mecca for land­scape pho­tog­ra­phers who visit to pho­to­graph the arch, the beau­ti­ful shin­gle beach and the tall cliffs. The lo­ca­tion does, how­ever, have its chal­lenges that our read­ers en­deav­oured to over­come. The Door, even on a cold win­ter day, is never quiet and pho­tog­ra­phers have to work around a steady flow of tourists and their selfie-sticks. What’s more, be­cause of the southerly po­si­tion, there is of­ten a high con­trast be­tween light and shade, which means ex­po­sures have to be well con­trolled to avoid over/un­der­ex­po­sures. Lastly, on our chal­lenge day, the read­ers were greeted by waves of mist – a rare oc­cur­rence at this lo­ca­tion.
