Man O War Bay

jakepike's picture

Man O war bay is located right next to Durdle door on the Dorset coastline, and possesses many great photographic opportunities. It is great to shoot at both sunrise and sunset, particularly in the winter as there are far less tourists. Try to get there at low tide as there are some great rock formations which are revealed when the tide goes out, if you walk a little way around the bay. The bay faces into the sunrise towards Dungy head when stood on the cliff top next to Durdle door. However if you walk around the bay towards Dungy head you can look back west along the coast to face into the sunset. Man O war bay is also a great place to shoot stormy seas, as the waves crash against the rocks that are situated a little out to sea guarding the beach. If you are going for a shot in rough weather, best use a telephoto lens and shoot from the cliff tops next to Durdle door.
