What's the story? Chapman's Pool near Worth Matravers has long been a favourite destination for us. The climb down is not for the faint hearted but the scene that greets you is more than worth the effort. The location has a mediterranean feel with the azure blue sea and the day we visited there was not another soul around. The abandoned huts, rusty anchor and old rowing boats juxtaposed with the luxury yacht anchored in the bay demonstrate the peace and tranquility of this stunning location.

Paper - we use a natural soft textured bright white matt 315gsm paper. The paper's bright white base and gentle texture delivers a quality print with a wide colour gamut, it's 100% acid free and accredited by the Fine Art Trade Guild as being of archival quality.
