I have just returned from a great weekend's photography down in Dorset with a couple of friends. For once the weather played its part and we managed some nice shots which I hope to share over the coming blogs. The exception with the weather was however this morning. We were up early (5:15 am) with the intention of travelling over to Harry's Rock. This would have been a 20 minute drive and possibly another 30 minutes walk from the car park.
When we stepped outside however the sky looked completely overcast (although it can be difficult to tell when its pitch black). We then took the decision to change our plans and instead parked up at Corfe Castle which was on our way. Checking out the overcast sky we decided not to bother with Harry's Rock and instead wait at the castle in case mist formed and we could capture some atmospheric shots.
In the end nothing happened but we did save ourselves around an hour and a half drive because we stayed open to the idea of reading the light rather than just continuing on with plans. I never even took my camera out today so instead, here is one of my images from the beach at Durdle Door yesterday evening.
