A Different View of Pulpit Rock

A Slightly Different View of Pulpit Rock

Today, as the weather decided to be nice, I thought that I’d venture down to Portland to take a few photos.

Something I’ve never really done is to have a good look around Pulpit Rock for an alternative to the view that you see reproduced again and again (including by myself), so I had a bit of a wander.

Whilst I was scrabbling around the rocks, I found this large Ammonite impression, and decided that this might make a good alternative viewpoint.

I got down low, set the lens to 17mm and stopped down to about f/16 to give some sharpness to the background so that you could tell tell that it was Pulpit Rock in the background.

Unfortunately there wasn’t much interest in the sky, as Mother Nature wasn’t so co-operative as to provide nice clouds as well ;o)

What do you think, does this viewpoint work?
