Travel photography is often about finding the best locations, and then making them better. Giving them a feeling of awe, and making people want to visit them. The Jurassic Coast in Dorset, England is starting to get a lot of publicity lately. And, a lot of the photo locations are starting to get saturated. But, we went out today and tried to improve on some of the most popular photo locations out there.
Landscape photography is kind of all about light. And, it actually didn't look like the light was going to be good all day today. We started in the old harbour of Weymouth here in The Jurassic Coast. We wanted to explore a bit before moving on to Durdle Door. But, it was cloudy, and a bit rainy. But, it was still beautiful.
The photography light got better, though as the day went on. And, we went photo location scouting in Portland, and then also made a stop at Lulworth Cove on the way to Durdle Door. Finally, we made our way to the famous landscape photography location right before sunset.
Durdle Door is amazing. It really is a worthy landscape photography location. And, the views aren't just great to the door, but they are actually amazing in all directions. You really can look any direction from the viewpoint and find killer shots to make.
Landscape photography at Durdle Door is pretty easy. It's one of those locations that's easy to shoot. And, the light ended up being amazing for us too. But, I think with any sort of landscape photography it's easy to fall into the trap of shooting the same composition over and over again. So, I was conscious not to do that.
Instead, I used a telephoto lens for a lot of my landscape photography at Durdle Door. Doing so allowed me to pick off some of the really cool details in the coast.
In the end, the light was amazing.
It led to my favourite photo of 2017 so far. I just love how it all came together.
Tomorrow, on the travel photography channel I have another landscape photography vlog from here on The Jurassic Coast as I head to Pundit Rock.
