Corfe Castle graveyard, Dorset

No, not Ireland, this is Dorset in southern England on a balmy summer's day.


Corfe Castle is also the name of the village beneath the castle. The colour here is enhanced only with a polarising filter. Behind is the sharp limestone ridge of the Purbeck hills, in the foreground is the Corfe Castle village graveyard. My attention was drawn by the yellow lichen on the cross and the rich and contrasty quality of the light that day.
