Corfe Castle in purple haze

By JohnoP
Taken this afternoon - a different view of the most photographed castle in Dorset. As the sun started to set it created a wonderful atmospheric haze. What I really like about this photograph is the way the simple layers of colour really work.

Nice one, John. So simple and so very effective.

Hello John, this is an impressive technique that is not so easy as I have tried it several times with mountains and failed...the layered beauty is complimented by the subtle colour haze. Well done.

The tones and layers make up an excellent composition, you have captured it perfectly.
The mist adds to the atmosphere.
