Over Somerset

By BillyGoatGruff  

Two weeks ago.

Just got set up in time to have the sun emerge from beneath an enormously dark, heavy cloud to bathe the still green lowlands of Somerset in amazing, hazy golden light.

Glastonbury Tor can just be made out on the horizon - well, if you go large, it can.

Shot from high up in the Mendip Hills near Priddy, where it was about -6, even though down in the vale it looks like summer; weird!

Thanks for dropping in. I guess you don't care much for the X factor, either! Smile

Hate the X factor. Much prefer raking about on here. This is a lovely shot, the lighting is beautiful. Moira

This is wonderful Bill, love the golden glow over the lowlands, in all the years I lived in Somerset I've never seen it like that! - I enjoyed X Factor, glad Matt won!

Avoiding X-Thingy by staking out epz and Flickr! This is a very nice piece of work, lovely POV and great choice of format too.

I used to work in Wells Bill, and I always loved going to Priddy. This brings back some lovely memories.
