Corfe Sky

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?

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
