A Post A Day Photo Challenge – Jan 19 2015

Hi folks,

I am taking on a challenge to post a photograph every day for a full year startingon New years Day.  Please join in by uploading a photograph of your own and leaving a pingback here 🙂

I thought I would share a couple of photographs today that highlight why you should not delete pictures from your camera unless absolutely necessary.  I was up early yesterday and headed over to Corfe Castle to try to capture some shots of the sunrise.  The clouds were breaking at home so I thought it might be a good sunrise.  Sadly over the castle itself the clouds were pretty much flat grey. They were more broken over towards Poole harbour and back towards Wareham from the very top of the hill.  It is a very tough climb, and at the time I thought an extra hour in bed would have been time better spent.  I just downloaded my shots and this is what I found.   The photo’s were taken just a few minutes apart.

Corfe Sky Sun 18Jan15-1Corfe Sky Sun 18Jan15-2The purple cast over the land wasn’t really visible to the naked eye, you could just see a very light mist.  I can only assume that the mist, angle of shooting and position of the sun combined to produce  an unusual effect.

What do you think?
