From Herefordshire Beacon

On Friday afternoon I drove east to the ridgeline known as the Malvern Hills. The southern anchor of the ridge is a point known as the Herefordshire Beacon. The hill tops out at a little over 1100 feet, and is probably 500 or more feet above the valley flour. The hilltop is crowned with a large Iron Age earthwork fortress. The area is included in a area of preservation called an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. And it is easy to see why.

I arrived in time for the sunset hour. These two images are a sampling of the interesting light that was available on this evening.

Sunset on Distant Hills

The first image is taken looking northwest,  the second a few degrees south of west.  Both take advantage of a three-stop ND grad filter to bring up the exposure of the foreground
