DescriptionA natural limestone arch near Lulworth Cove on Dorset's Jurassic Coast.
What to ShootSorry, but you have to go down the steep steps onto the beach and shoot the arch from there for best results!
What to TakeTake some ND and graduated filters to control contrast and to allow long exposures which look particularly good here.
ParkingDrive through the holiday camp and park at the grass carpark on the headland.
Best TimesMost often shot at sunrise.
