Last Light Flight – Old Harry Rocks, UK

Golden rays of light blanket lush fields of British countryside, as the sea laps gently at the sixty-six million year old cliff faces of Old Harry Rocks, UK.

The shoreline of the UK’s Jurassic Coast is truly spectacular and one-of-a-kind. This particular spot is quite well known on this stretch of coastline in Dorset. Coastal erosion has exposed sequences of rock layers spanning Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, and personally to see these formations from out over the open ocean was nothing short of amazing.

Old Harry Rocks are reached by parking your car just up the road from the Bankes Arms pub, followed by a 15-20 minute walk down a road, and on a dirt path to the coast. Incredible light and an incredible location both made for an absolutely amazing flight!

I love the photographic ability the drone gives me, in being able to see the world from a completely different angle. The image is shot using the DJI Mavic Air drone, around 30 minutes before sunset. It comprises of 4 images in landscape mode with manual gimbal pitch movements, stitched together in Adobe Lightroom to form one large, high resolution vertical image.
