Stone Staks, near Chesil Beach, Dorset Aug 13th 2012

This is a drawing of a few of the Stone Staks on Hallelujah Bay, Off Chesil Beach.
I happened to see the artist on TV a couple of months ago, then spotted some
stone staks whilst kayaking around Durdle Door, they are very beautiful.

A couple of days later I accidentally found out about a community event that had taken place just a little walk from Chesil beach... so I got down there to find this wonderous site...

White stones piled everywhere like a cathedral, with the sound of the
waves on the rocks it was quite beautiful and very moving.
