This is taken near Portland looking at the Fleet that is between Chesil Beach and the mainland

Chesil Beach is 18 miles (28 kilometres) long and, on average, 160 metres wide and rises to 12 metres in height. It is a pebble and shingle tombolo connecting Portland to Abbotsbury and then continuing north-westwards to West Bay near Bridport. It is the largest tombolo in the UK.

The pebbles are graded in size from fist-sized near Portland to pea-sized at Bridport. The pebbles are mainly a mix of flint and chert, with some quartzite pebbles from Buddleigh Salterton.

The origin of the beach continues to be argued over with some proposing it is actually two beaches. The stretch from West Bay to Abbotsbury appears to have different characteristics to the stretch from Abbotsbury to Portland.

The beach forms part of the Dorset and East Devon World Heritage Site, known as the Jurassic Coast.

An interesting and informative pre-narrative supported by a wonderful composition with both interest and clarity in depth. The inclusion of the figure adds a touch or realism in this huge area...
