Pulpit Rock on Isle of Purbeck, Jurassic coast
5th November 2017
My name is Roy Fraser, and I'm a fine art landscape photographer from Poole in the South England County of Dorset. I have been a professional photographer for over 40 years.
I tend to be drawn into the wider aspects of the landscapes in the harshest of conditions. I have no idea why but I can be found by the coast in a storm with a smile! My real preference is to capture coastal seascapes and I'm happy as long as water can feature in my images. Rivers and puddles count too. See my website here
This photo is of Pulpit Rock.
Pulpit Rock is a coastal feature at the tip of the promontory Portland bill and the very southern tip of the Isle of Portland. Pulpit Rock is one of Portland's most popular attractions.The artificial stack of rock was left in the 1870s after a natural arch was cut away by quarrymen at the Bill Quarry on the famous promontory Portland Bill. It was intentionally left in place as a quarrying relic. The landmark was designed with religious connections; the large slab of rock leaning again the main stack depicted an open bible leaning on a pulpit.
When I set up to take a picture I like to keep the camera in my bag until I have had an opportunity to assess the location, look for a composition that I like, and wait for the light and conditions to be at their optimum. Then I get to work.
