Stoborough Heath near Wareham in Dorset is not an easy place to photograph, having very few vantage points high enough to offer a view of the surroundings. Having made my way to the top of one of its few hills, I was amazed by the vibrant heather stretching out into the distance. I struggled to find a coherent composition in a largely featureless landscape, eventually deciding to place this line of bracken in the foreground, leading the eye to the tree on the left. Luckily, I managed to set up in time to catch the sun breaking the horizon.
