There is something special about a landscape photograph that features rolling hills. Something rugged, even timeless. Even better is when mist or low cloud descends. The low winter sun is not far off setting, and this, along with the higher level clouds, has created this wonderfully eerie effect. Almost monochrome, but with a hint of colour. The two trees in the foreground framing this shot of the Malvern Hills perfectly.
I was hoping to get a photograph from the Worcestershire Beacon at the very top. However, although it felt a little breezy at the bottom, the higher I climbed the stronger the wind. By the time I reached the peak, it was all but impossible to hold the camera. So, I had to settle for this location further down. By this time, the colours were appearing, which for me has made the image.
