Artist's Description

Paulette x was capturing anglers on the shore at Chesil Beach, near Abbotsbury, on the Dorset coast. While she was busy snapping, I snapped the snapper.

Caution - Photographer at Work

Chesil Beach, sometimes called Chesil Bank, in Dorset, southern England. is a barrier beach that has “rolled” landwards, joining the mainland with Portland Bill. The shingle beach is 29 kilometres (18 mi) long, 200 metres (660 ft) wide and 15 metres (50 ft) high. The beach and the Fleet are part of the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the location for a book On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan.
Varying with the Bank’s unbroken increase in height to 14.7m above mean high water, the size of the flint and chert shingle varies from pea-sized at the north-west end (by West Bay) to potato-sized at the south-east end (by Portland). It is said that smugglers who landed on the beach in the middle of the night could judge their position by the size of the shingle.
