Durdle Door is one of the most photographed landmarks along the Jurassic Coast. This rock arch in the sea was formed as a result of the softer rocks being eroded away behind the hard limestones, allowing the sea to punch through them. The name Durdle is derived from an Old English word 'thirl' meaning bore or drill.

 

It is very difficult to come up a new take on such a famous place as Durdle Door, however I have not seen a single photo like this during my extensive research of this place. I opted for the half rock/ half reflection that created interesting effect.
