Jurassic View

By Stubill  
I ended up on top of Emmetts Hill, Purbeck, Dorset, yesterday evening, and witnessed some of the most intense sunset light I have seen for a long time (at least when out with the camera Sad).
Being one of the most exposed spots along this stretch of coast, and with the wind howling through my tripod, I had to keep reminding myself that it's around a 100m drop.
I needed the tripod up high to get the comp. I was after, so pushed the ISO a bit, and wait for a brief lull in the gusts.
Thanks for dropping by as always, and a great weekend to everyone.

Really like the lines that curve through the shot, and that lovely sunset. I hate heights, so well done on standing up there.

Really good view point - the eye can happily travel from the foreground, following the line of the coast to the dramatic sunset.

Excellent composition and colour Stu. I can just imagine how windy it must have been on top of the cliffSmile
