These pictures capture Old Harry Rocks as you rarely see it.

Andy Lyons took this picture of the famous landmark over the weekend during the extreme spring tides.

While, Lets Go Out Bournemouth and Poole shared this picture of people walking to Old Harry due to the low tide in our Flickr group.

Dorset Beaches:

The weekend's temperamental tides were brought on by the Spring Equinox, which started on the day of the eclipse on Friday, March 20. 

This is regarded by astronomers as the start of spring and is when hours of daylight have lengthened enough to be equal to the hours of the night.

The night before the eclipse, the earth and moon were as close together as they could be, giving rise to a so-called Supermoon.

All new and full moons create what are called spring tides, when the earth, moon and sun are aligned, but Supermoons accentuate the spring tides even further, creating what’s called a perigean spring tide.

It is this phenomenon that caused the extreme low tide on Saturday evening, when two people got stuck in mud and a further four people became trapped by the tide near Old Harry Rocks.

Dorset Police were called around 6pm  by a member of a group who 'was panicking because he and his group of friends were lost and becoming cut off by a rising tide'.

They were taken by Swanage Inshore lifeboat and transferred to the Poole's all weather lifeboat which was standing by.

However, no further warnings for low tides have been released and the tides will become less extreme as we get closer to the end of the month.
