Misty dawn in the Redlake Valley
A layer of mist cloaks the landscape as dawn breaks over the beautiful Redlake Valley in Shropshire.
This was my view from the slopes of the county’s ‘other’ Caer Caradoc, which overlooks the village of Chapel Lawn, near Clun.
The hill is crowned with an Iron Age fort, just like its namesake near Church Stretton.
It is believed it may have been a rallying point for the men who fought alongside Caractacus in his last stand against the Romans.
Legend has it that the valley got its name because it ran red with blood after the British chieftain was defeated.
I've wanted to get this shot for a good while now, so I was really happy to cross it off my list!
