[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
D7000 :
Durdle Door is one of the most photographed landmarks along the Jurassic Coast. 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. The name Durdle is derived from an Old English word 'thirl' meaning bore or drill. Eventually the arch will collapse to leave a sea stack such as those that can be seen at Ladram Bay in East Devon.

Hi Anil,good timing!You have caught the participants mid air perfectly,it`s a shame the horizon isn`t level which is a distraction that could be easily cured.

Hi Anil,
good action shot, if the horizon was straight it would show that the jumpers would have to jump out a large distance to clear the bottom of the cliff. With that slope the English Channel would have emptied into the Meditteranean - was it deliberate?
