Chesil Beach: people dotted along the beach
Chesil Beach: people dotted along the beach
Looking down from Portland Heights, the people enjoying Chesil Beach look like little more than dots, while the fishermen's tents are more conspicuous.

From here, although it is one of the most spectacular viewpoints for the whole length of Chesil Beach, it is not easy to appreciate the steepness or overall height of the shingle bank: it reaches in excess of 10 metres along the spine (roughly coinciding with the right-hand edge of the picture) and the ridges visible just in from the shore perhaps hint at the gradient.
