Man of War Bay

Man O’War Beach in Durdle Door, Wareham, United Kingdom. Photo by Lydia Harper.

A very popular beach of sand and fine pebbles on the east side of Durdle Door. The Man O’ War and the Door shelter the beach providing safe bathing in shallow water.

Man O’War beach at Worbarrow Bay on the Jurassic coast in Dorset. Beautiful beaches and turquoise sea! Photo from the Instacanvas gallery for kitzieg.


English: Man O’War Cove in St Oswalds Bay, Dorset, England (near Lulworth Cove and the natural rock arch of Durdle Door). The steps down to Man O’War Cove from the cliffs above are clearly seen. A tiny trace of the light coming through the natural rock arch of Durdle Door is seen slightly to the right of the top of the steps. The lack of visibility in the distance is due to sea mist.
Hi!! I’m Adrian Pingstone, 76 years old, with two sons: John and Michael. I live near Bristol, in the south west of England. I’m retired, after working at British Aerospace Filton for 36 years. My work included Concorde noise measurements (as an acoustics engineer), then studies of the effect of Concorde on the environment (as an assistant environmental scientist), and finally Airbus A320, A330 and A340 wing design (as a senior aerodynamicist). My hobby is photography. I started contributing pictures to Wikipedia in January 2003. My cameras are a Canon S95 compact, a Panasonic FZ200 bridge camera, and a Nikon D5300 DSLR (the latter used only for aircraft photos).
