This Scorched Earth

By Alan_Coles
An image taken last evening on a short stroll onto one of the local mountains with Morgs, 2megs & Stuart from Caldicot. Some mountains around here have controlled burning to help maintain the heather for grouse but many of the surrounding mountains have been burnt by kids who seem to have nothing better to do - the blorenge is particlarly black n scorched atm. It was a little cold up there last night even with the setting sun giving a warm glow.

Now, where have I seen that sky before?!! Wink

Seriously though, you've done a good job here as flare was an issue, and I can't detect your work to get rid of it Al. Looks good to me. Nice light catching the heather in the foreground which works nicely.
