The idea behind this photograph came about earlier in this holiday, when I had walked from Harmans Cross to Corfe Castle, crossing Corfe Common in the process.   The timetable and lighting really meant I would only have one shot at this, and having taken the train to Corfe Castle from Swanage, I only had half-an-hour to get from the station to the location, about a mile away.

I think that on the whole the shot worked reasonably well, although perhaps I would have been better working from a little further east of the location.   

This was one of four photographs from this holiday that were given to my brother to rework from the RAW file.  I suspect that I would have come up with something different had I done this myself, but it did open my eyes to just what my work was capable of becoming.
