"This section of the Dorset coastline is relatively remote compared with other parts of this popular coast. To reach this particular spot requires a 45 minute walk from the coastal path and a walk along the shoreline below the high water mark, so keeping a careful watch on the tides is critical. Here a relatively small section of beach contains some extremely photogenic smooth weathered rocks. Even in calm conditions the steeply shelved beach produces quite high surf, creating conditions which allow long exposure photographs to capture an effective misty feel."
