I haven't done any Landscape Photography for a while, not since my visit to the Lake District, and tonight was actually only the second time I've ever shot a landscape at sunset. Myself and a friend headed to Mow Cop Castle in Cheshire, a small area of land with some very well preserved ruins of the Castle. Although not a famous UK Castle, Mow Cop is very well known throughout Cheshire and Staffordshire. Its iconic structure is a true landmark for all those who live in the surrounding towns and villages.
The Castle provides a beautiful subject, not only during the golden hour, but throughout all weather and seasons. The sunset would provide a gorgeous array of warm colours soaking the brickwork and fields around us.
For anyone who has never been to Mow Cop Castle, you drive up some very steep lanes and then climb up a short distance on foot to reach the ruins. Surrounding you are towns and flat land of the Cheshire plains. You can see for miles around you and with the amount of families, teenagers and fellow photographers that joined us on top the the hill, it's definitely a gorgeous sight for all to see.
Although a little chilly as the light began to fade away, it was a beautiful sunset which I hope the following pictures I took do justice to this well loved landmark.
