I was at Hopton Castle near Craven Arms for sunrise and took this first shot of some wonderful red light casting the shadow of a tree onto the medieval walls.
It was an hour’s drive to get there and the sky was mostly full of clouds all the way, but thankfully they parted briefly at sunrise. And it really was just for a moment as the red light only lasted ten seconds and then it was gone. Right place, right time.
The next few hours were spent exploring some of the surrounding hills, and I am looking forward to going back in a few months’ time when there is more colour in the landscape.
I spent the last few hours of daylight on Titterstone Clee. This is a place I have visited many times but rarely in an afternoon, and there was an unrelenting cold wind that made it difficult to keep the camera steady.
Half way down the hill on my way back to the car I took a shot of the sun setting over Black Mixen in Wales, with Mortimer Forest in the foreground.
Very happy with the Hopton Castle sunrise picture, and now the problem is to decide where to go next!
