Corfe Castle

The rising sun breaking through dawn mist at Corfe Castle. I selected my location on the flank of West Hill so the castle stood against the sky, to the right of the hill over which I knew the sun would rise. I was careful to retain separation between different parts of the ruined keep and to hide obtrusive modern development. Nothing has been cloned out of this image! The resulting composition gives a timeless feel to this 12th century castle, which was ruined in the English Civil War following its capture by Parliamentary forces in 1645.
