Rolling Over by Neutron2K Rolling Over by Neutron2K
THREE years, averaging 80+ failed trips to get shots of Corfe Castle in Dorset with fog rolling around the hills.

It seems to be quite rare this scene crops up according to one of the locals which is no suprise. Every time we've had fog around, i've headed to this hill and NEVER had the right conditions. Until this morning.

This is the first shot from this morning that i've decided to submit. Its not the best shot from the collection (at least for me) but its the shot that i've always wanted to get.

Its a very cliched shot and its one thats been taken time and again, or at least to a similar extent but I don't care. This shot is one i've dreamed of taking ever since I started photography. I've tried to give it my own spin with a uncommon composition, using the castle on the right third and looking out towards Poole Harbour.

Enjoy.

Brilliant shot, my friend. I can testify to the ellusive nature of mist around Corfe Castle; many a morning it has failed to turn up. But you seem to have nailed it here!

Maybe it's cliched among photographers, but I am not one, and these kind of images never fail to awe me. The hill behind the castle, that really looks like smoke pouring over it. Wonderful.

I just worked out that you did the equivalent of driving around the earth one and a half times using 4364 litres of petrol 5237 of petrol, not to mention the 38400 miles worth of depreciation to your car and spending 1 month and 10 days driving, now that's dedication!

Corfe is 40 miles from my house so thats 80 miles both ways. X by around 80 trips is roughly 6400 miles. Would explain some of the 74000 miles I added to my leon in the 3 years I owned it. Used to do a lot of driving mate. Have stopped this year tho.

Not quite sure how you worked out those figures or maybe just sarcasm :)

ah, I obviously misunderstood some of your statements, although I did double check them. For example 80 average, means 80 per year, otherwise it wouldnt be an average
