On Holmbury Hill

IMG_1670_WPThe weather has turned wet and cooler – I said Summer wouldn’t last – and in sympathy with the change of weather, this photo was taken earlier in the year on my iPhone when the weather was a lot colder.

Richard (son and heir), plus daughter’s dog, and me went for a walk up Holmbury Hill at the beginning of March. Holmbury Hill is about three miles due west of Leith Hill – already visited twice  – once in cloud (click here) and once on a perfect winter’s day (click here). It’s possible to walk from one hill to the next, something I hope to do before too long

So what sort of weather did we have on Holmbury Hill? It was overcast, and rain was a possibility – we thought. Less than five minutes after this shot was taken, just as we crested the summit, we were hit by a blizzard of snow. All over in five minutes or so and then life resumed as usual. The dog seemed unperturbed.

  1. Great shot Andy, pity about the blizzard though 🙂


  2. What a great composition. And how nice to have a son and granddog at the ready. I also like that there’s just that tiny bit of color.

      Thanks Linda. It’s good to be closer to our son and daughter. We lost our King Charles spaniel quite a few years ago now and still miss him. It’s nice to have a dog to stay without being permanently responsible for him. A bit like having a grandchild.

    What a great silhouette this is, and I really love the composition too.
