Derek Pelling’s favourite picture

View from Coombe Hill looking towards Ellesborough Church

View from Coombe Hill looking towards Ellesborough Church

After last week’s picture of the year I decided to look further back.

This is a shot that always sticks in my mind as being a favourite.

I took it back in 2006 for the Advertiser, our sister title .

The editor of the time Chris East asked me to get a wintry front page photograph.

Faced with a very foggy day and little time Coombe Hill was my destination.

I drove there in the hope that something would present itself.

As I headed up to the car park the fog cleared and it was a lovely sunny day.

I parked up and walked to the monument, I couldn’t believe my luck, Ellesborough church was visible just above the sea of fog, perfect!

I got my shots and headed back to the office to a very happy editor.
