Heading home on a cold clear Friday night, I thought there would be a good chance of mist the next morning. So, alarm set for 6am I set out for Bodiam castle. The weather didn’t disappoint.
I arrived while it was still relatively dark, so I set up the camera and tripod using the light from the car boot before trundling off toward the castle.
Though my main focus was to capture any mist coming off the moat, I did stop to take one or two shots looking out across the fields.
I decided to use the foliage to frame my a lot of my shots, as the sky, looking from the south east corner, was pretty plain. It wasn’t until I walked round to the north west corner, that the sky proved to be a little more dramatic (once the sun had started to rise above the layer of mist). It was here that I bumped into another photographer, who I had a nice chat with as we snapped away.
All shots were taken at 10mm (crop sensor) and filtered with a 3 stop ND grad. (See phone snap below)
