Peveril Point Seascapes

Continuing my series from Dorest, here is a selection taken from near the Peveril Point Lookout Station, at the tip of Swanage Bay - plus two from the Purbeck Hills looking over to Peveril Point. The views you get from here are into Swanage Bay, or west in to Durlston Bay, and across eastwards to the Old Harry Rocks and further off towards Bournemouth. Another very rewarding area for the keen photographer, especially if you get up early!

All these taken early morning, with the K7, and all on the tripod with remote control and mirror up operation. Mostly at small apertures, f9 to f13 or so, and shutter speeds mostly around 1/15th - 1/60th second, ISO 100.


1. Firstly the view from the Purbeck hills towards the Peveril Point (at the end of the spit) - 'M' 75-150 f4.0 plus 2x telecoverter (focal length = 300mm), f13






2. Looking west from the Peveril Point area towards Durslton Head, 'A' 28mm f2.8, f13






3. The wide view back towards Peveril Point (Old Harry in the far distance), Samyang 14mm f2.8, f11






4. 2nd view towards Durlston Head, 'A' 28mm f2.8, f13






5. Telezoom into Old Harry Rocks, 'M' 75-150 f4.0, 150mm at f11






6. Finally a wide look at the whole area, taken from the Purbeck Hills east of Swanage, looking west into the bay (Durlston is over the horizon behind the hillside on the spit), Samyang 14mm f2.8 at 13

I prefer number 3. The plant growing out of the corner of 2 spoils it IMO. Also I might be tempted to crop the grass from 6 and turn it into a panoramic shot.

I think it can be challenging to try and capture those types of view with anything less than a wide angle. I used to shoot landscapes back in my film days and the 24mm was my favorite lens. A narrow angle of view really needs an interesting item within the landscape.

Thanks , yes I was blessed on a number of beautiful mornings with great light which gave different potential as it rose from dawn through to about 8am, when I would pack it in and head back to reality for breakfast time

Thanks also Russ and Gajan, the other long zoom shot of Swanage was popular also, looking as it did further into the Bay. I was pleased with the performance of the old 75-150 plus teleconverter combo for these shots ... Do I need a DA 300? Maybe I'll get away without it?

Fair point about the foreground plant there Russ, I couldn't get much else in close there without moving down to steep ground. Thanks again all for the replies
