Magical morning on top of Caer Caradoc

An ethereal view of Wenlock Edge as the sun rises over Wolverhampton and the West Midlands.

Magical morning on top of Caer Caradoc

I took this picture while standing on the summit of Caer Caradoc, on a magical morning when the landscape looked like something from another world.

This was my reward for keeping a sharp eye on the weather forecast.

Fog had been predicted for several days, but of course nothing is ever certain.

I set out at 4.30am and as I approached Church Stretton I could see the looming shape of Caradoc shrouded in white.

Clouds of fog rolled in as I walked up the hill, and when I reached the summit I was greeted with wonderful views that took your breath away.

Mornings don’t come much better than this!
