Corfe Castel in the Mist (almost)

By knackeredoldman  
So I was out shooting Corfe Castle last week, all lined up for the misty morning but opened the door at 4:30 to be confronted by rain, lots of rain.

Having a slight screw loose I decided to head out in to the rain because, well you never can tell....

I arrived at CC and enjoyed a gentle breeze, a lie down in the morning dew but no shots I decided to head to the coast to try and make something of my morning.

Happily I found some lovely wooded groynes stretching out in to the distance and set up and shot away.

....then when I got home and checked, my worst fears were confirmed, this was the exact location where Ross Hoddinott's well publicised groyne shot came from, heck it might even have been the same groyne or even the same post!

Having said that mine is B&W and I was at least brave enough to make sure that the wood in mine was glistening and wet but there is no doubt that 100% original - it ain't! Bum.

but then is Corfe Catle in the mist, the faerie pools in the highlands or BEM any more original? Should I be worried about this?

Thanks for looking. Any thoughts or feedback much appreciated and of course, please do LARGE ME UP.
