I remember the walk so well, such stunning views from the top, i have posted here a few pictures. You chose a stunning angle to portray this arch at its best, the light giving us much detail to the rock. Great addition to theme friday, have a good weekend. tfs

Hello Joy, when I look at the arch, the clouds appear to be moving!That sky is such a great backdrop.
Great PoV of this magnificent arch, showing the erosion by the sea.Love the view through to the beach, where the people are so small, they give scale to the picture.
Excellent sharp quality throughout, well done.
Tfs, regards Jean.

A superb entry to Friday's theme, Joy!
Amazing management of light and a well thought POV in order to unveil the beauty of this eroded piece of art!
The natural arcade is wonderfully shown against an artistic sky.
Well caught exposure and light too.
Have a nice weekend.
You Know Joy, you have probably made me the most envious man of all participants of this weeks theme.
I was determined to grab a few shots of this place when we went to Cornwall on holiday a couple of weeks ago, but we just never ever managed to add it to our schedule of adventures. I know it's in a completely different county, but we planned a south coast coastal cruise to Dorset on our way back, but alas…..
Never mind, maybe next year.
This is a unique point of view for me. I've seen many Magazine, Postcard and Calendar shots from beach to Durdle Door, or from cliff top to Durdle Door, but never have I seen an image from sea to Durdle Door. ……That is what has made me envious.
I was a soldier in the armoured division, so spent many, many tours at Lulworth cove, Bovington etc firing into the sea ranges on exercise, and I never managed to get to see this historic "piece of rock" in all its glory.
You have brought back a great deal of memories and have captured possibly one of the best images of the formation that I have ever seen.
The rock may be eroded, but my memories of the place are certainly intact.

Wow! Judging from the people in the bg, this natural bridge is huge! Nicely captured with good lighting and dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors with good saturation. Well done, tfs.

Hi Joy, with such a close pov of the arch, even the cliffs look small. The people are almost invisible. Love the wispy clouds as a backdrop.Fiona

Interestingly the persons in the photo have to put in some effort to reach the beach and view the arch , satisfying i think to be rewarded with this huge rock at the end of the walk , my interest for this image is the much different point of view ,from a boat and get the rock , hill and beach in one shot , it all looks good to me, great sky to enhance the shades of brown of the limestone even more , nicely exposed too , tfs and participating to the theme Joy ,

very good for the theme , very precise rock and beautiful sky
We have a place very near of this for the aspect in France; it is called Vallon-Pont-d'Arc .Certainly the same causes for the same result
good week end
