Walk to the top

Today I decided that it would be fun to get out and take some landscape photos on the Brown Clee in Ditton Priors, Shropshire, England.

So what is the Brown Clee Hill, it is the highest hill in the rural English county of Shropshire, at 540 metres above sea level. It was home to active quarrying until 1936 and used to have a rail track to the top, which is now a road up the steep incline. At the top of the hill are the remains of several derelict buildings along with sheep, horses and a couple of radio and satellite masts.

I had been watching the weather all week and it was changeable all week, but finally the weather for the day was forecast to be mixed, so that could mean anything, but some clear spells were also planned. So I loaded up the camera, tripod and accessories and set off. On a clear day the views from the top are wonderful, today required a little imagination, but there were some cloud breaks on the hills around. While the views could have been better if the weather had behaved, the morning was good and I had the pleasure of taking my father to the top of the hill with me, as he had not walked the incline to the top before.
