Broad Ledge

Broad Ledge is a shale and limestone ledge which juts into the sea below Church Cliff on the east side of Lyme Regis. On a low tide, it’s a popular rock pooling spot, as it’s host to a number of mollusks, crustaceans and fish.

However, on a cold January dawn, when the sky is heavy with rain and the wind gnaws at your ears, far fewer people visit. I arrived for a sunrise shoot in the hope that the rain would hold off but unfortunately it caught up with me sooner than I would have liked. As sunrise began an icy rainstorm arrived from the north and devoured the view. I was soon retreating and cursing myself for not taking an umbrella.

But all was not lost; when I got home I realised that I had one shot that hadn’t been ruined by the rain. In fact, if anything, the approaching downpour added to the atmosphere of the scene – a great foreboding presence come to extinguish the dawn.
