Ringstead Bay

jakepike's picture

Ringstead bay is a relatively un photographed part of the Dorset coastline. It lies about a mile east of Osmington Mills and is, in my opinion, a great place to take photos. White Nothe (A large chalk cliff) can be seen clearly from Ringstead bay, giving a great backdrop for shots from the beach. Ringstead like anywhere else on the Jurassic coast, is best photographed in the winter, as there are next to no people at this time of year. Both sunrise and sunset are good times to visit this location - at sunset White Nothe will be lit up in evening light, and at sunrise the sun will appear behind the cliff. There are also many features on Ringstead beach. There is a Groyne (good for sunsets), a rock ledge if you walk along the beach towards osmington, and if you go in the complete opposite direction towards White Nothe, there will be some rocks great for long exposures at sunset  (probably sunrise too). If you walk along the beach in either direction, the tide will come into play, so make sure it is low so as not to be cut off.
