My reward for an early start today was this misty view of Ludlow Castle at dawn. I’ve wanted to take some misty pictures of Ludlow for a long time now, and after studying the weather forecasts I headed to Whitcliffe Common which overlooks the town.
Through trial and error I have learned that just because there is going to be mist, it doesn’t mean it is going to be where you want it or even the right amount. Too much mist and you might not see anything (which has happened to me before) or it is everywhere else in the countryside except where you want it to be.
I aim to always get to a location for sunrise with plenty of time to spare. If I hadn’t allocated extra time this morning then I wouldn’t have been able to get this first shot. The next picture is a close-up of the walls and battlements of this majestic castle
There always seem to be swans on the River Teme when I’m in Ludlow and today was no different. I had to wait half an hour on Dinham Bridge for them to be exactly where I wanted them, but there are worse ways to spend your time!
I then headed back up to Whitcliffe Common and captured the final shot of the castle with Brown Clee in the distance - a classic view of this lovely English town.
