Chesil Beach sunset.


The Isle of Portland is the southernmost part of Dorset. It’s about 5 miles south of Weymouth and can be reached via a thin stretch of shingle beach and road which joins it to the mainland. It’s position is enviable, as it has panoramic views of the Jurassic Coast. As such, it is a wonderful place to photograph the sunset.

I had an inkling that the sunset on this day would be good, so I took my chances and drove for an hour or so until I reached the island. I made my way up to a popular view point on and waited. Even though it was June, the wind up on the hill was cold and strong. I was worried that this meant the clouds I’d attached such promise to when I left home would blow past too quickly. But I shouldn’t have been concerned. As the sunset progressed the sky lit up with some astonishing colours.

In this photograph I focused on the western section of Chesil Beach and the fiery sky above it.
