Misty dawn over the ruins of Ludlow Castle

Those blue remembered hills - here are layers of mist swirling around Ludlow Castle in the cool light of dawn.

Misty dawn over the ruins of Ludlow Castle

On the horizon is Brown Clee - the highest hill in Shropshire - with its twin peaks of Abdon Burf and Clee Burf.

The castle dates from the 11th century and was once home to Prince Arthur, elder brother of Henry VIII, who died here in 1502 at the age of just 15.

This picture involved yet another early start for me. I left the house at 3.30am and ended up on Whitcliffe Common, where I captured this shot an hour or so later.

I hung around on Whitcliffe for a while hoping the sun would come out, but it wasn’t to be and in the end I decided to head back home to catch up on some much-needed sleep.
