This is a complete contrast to the last shot. I wanted to take a very simple landscape with few distractions. Here I have taken the wonderful limestone arch of Durdle Dor.

This rock arch in the sea was formed as a result of the softer rocks being eroded away behind the hard limestones, allowing the sea to punch through them. Eventually the arch will collapse to leave a sea stack

This was shot using early morning light on a bright and sunny day.

Again this was using the Sigma 10-20mm lens and also an ND grad (the try to balance the bright sky)

Hi Karan.
You have shared a great picture. Bravo and my congratulations. You manage to find an amazing subject and nice weather for shooting. I think the POV is the best too. Quality of the shot is brilliant. Its colour palette (colours are clean and bright), lights and impressive shadows are amazing too. Superb job. TFS and best wishes.

Hi Karan,
I really like the approuch of the simple landscape. I remember your series from Brighton very well and you got the same serene vibe in this photo again. The combination of the few lines, the very clear ocean and the light make a wonderful artistic photo.

Hello Karan
This is a fine shot..if im honest though maybe you could have got a little close to ground slightly to reduce the foreground..but hey!!..im no expert on landscapes at all and its a great balanced shot.

Wouaw, splendid dream shot, wonderfull light and colors very well satured, very good composition et reflection is excellent,
well done,

Hi Karen,
another great shot from this stretch of the coast, the water is so calm and the reflection is beautiful. Very good job on the exposure and i like the way the water merges seemlessly with those pebbles. Did you walk here from Lulworth?

Hola Karan,
una maravillosa postal,
serena escena, parece un caballo
bebiendo agua,
precioso pov,
saludos amiga.

I can see that you are having fun with your new lens. The stillness of the water is amazing and quite beautiful. I like your simple composition.

Hello Karan,
A strange phenomenon of nature has been captured!
Simple but effective presentation, what more is there to tell...
The calm waters allow for a fine reflection, and the shady side of the rock is well exposed!

Hello Karan,
Wonderful capture from Durdle Door. I'm amazed to see the smooth sea and the clear sky!! You really caught the right opportunity to get this shot with the sunlight coming through the arch. The composition is very beautiful,I love the clear water, the sharp pebbles and the lovely blue stripe at the horizon.
Many thanks, Ulla

Hello Karan.
Very beautiful. I've seen many wonderful shots of this place and I didn't think it would be possible to find a new way of capturing it but you have. A great close up showing all the beautiful structures in the arch and the lovely pebbles in the water. Very well done.
Best regards, Steve.
