Corfe Castle at night

The National Trust lit up Corfe Castle again this year for Christmas and the New Year so my friend Pat and I went down one evening to take pictures. The weather had been very changeable and when we got down to Corfe Castle it had just stopped raining heavily so we were very lucky, it started again when we made our way home.

We got there before dusk so we decided to go up in the castle while it was easy to see our way round as there would be many dark spots to trip over later in the evening. There wasn’t a particularly good sunset but the light was very nice and we managed to get some nice images of the ruined walls with the lights on them.

Before we made our way down we took some images of the village of Corfe Castle as the lights came on.

We slowly made our way down to the main gate, there were a few people abut but as long as they kept walking they didn’t show on our pictures because of the slow shutter speeds.

We spent a little time in Corfe Castle Churchyard it was a little tricky taking images with all the security lights around playing havoc with the exposures.

Our last place to take pictures was in Corfe Castle railway station it was completely desrted so we could wander around getting some good views.

By the time we had taken a few images in the station we decided it was time to go home, we had had a good evening and enjoyed ourselves in the lovely village of Corfe Castle.
