This was not today’s intended photograph. I had spotted a wall which, for some bizarre reason, had taps embedded in the cement. That was the shot. Then, I saw the sky clearing. This gave me something of a dilemma. Do I stick with the unusual photograph I have already taken, or do I take a chance and go for a climb?. The latter won, and I started the climb once again of the Malvern Hills.
I am glad I did. Whilst this is not the perfect shot I would like – the blue sky that had tempted me up disappeared by the time I got there! However, this moody sky creates a wonderful atmosphere. I have used the rocks on which the Trig Point is stood as a lead into the shot. This is one of those occasions where an excessive foreground works. There are plenty of textures to please the eye and, whilst it draws the eye to the Trig Point (deliberately set off-centre), the clouds then draw the eye to the view behind.
