Day 47 – 29th October 2016

Throughout my long morning hike Bredon Hill was “head in the clouds” with a constant but very light misty drizzle (mizzle?). Contrary to what many believe – that you can only do photography in the sun – these conditions are perfect for finding a refreshing perspective on the familiar.

I think that (without checking back) today is the first on which I’ve posted a Bredon Hill photograph with people in it – except for the bonfire on 21st April (Day 21) when there were over 100!

The magnificent autumn colours are at their best at present, but I find it interesting that Bredon Hill is much less of a spectacle than the surrounding villages and countryside. It’s probably because the trees planted in gardens and villages are selected at least in part for their autumn colour. Our native trees are mostly less demonstrative, and these are what predominate on the hill. But the beeches do stand out.
