I honestly cannot stop looking at this photo. To be able to capture a moment like this is amazing, even better to be able to witness this skyline. I could watch this for days. Thank you for the post. Truly inspiring.

Durdle Door

Durdle Door is probably one of the most recognizable beaches in the UK, primarily because of its natural rock arch. This part of the coastline is surreal and beautiful, which unfortunately my pictures can’t really do justice too.
Asides from the striking beauty of this place, what really surprised me was the amount of photographers that were out shooting. I arrived around midnight and photographed till 3am, and throughout that time, there was around 20 photographers on the beach and surrounded cliffs taking pictures. Normally I wont see a soul anywhere when shooting around Cornwall, so it made a nice change to be able to share stories and advice while waiting for the exposures.
This picture is one out of five compositions I captured from the trip. I wanted to show a sense of the atmosphere and beauty of the locations. I was also fortunate enough to witness an amazing light display from Noctilucent Clouds just before the first light of dawn. I have never seen anything quite like it before, but it was certainly one of the highlights of the trip!
