Durdle Door

Around midwinter, sunset can be photographed through the arch of Durdle Door in Dorset. I made this image during my Jurassic Coast Photography Tour. The group lined up on the beach and waited for the sun to fall on each of us in turn, so we could each make a picture of the sun clipping the side of the arch. I made my image with a fish-eye lens at 15mm focal length. I like the curved perspective the fish-eye gives to the bay and the wave. By keeping the horizon straight across the middle of the image, I was able to avoid that becoming curved too.
