I haven't taken many pictures recently, but it was such a beautiful day yesterday that while we were out walking I had to snap a few shots. These are of the Malvern Hills, near to where I live. Nothing very special from a height point of view, but nevertheless, they dominate the surrounding countryside. The autumn colours are coming, but not yet enough I thought for the colours challenge :) .

This first shot is looking North along the ridge of the Malvern Hills. The Herefordshire Beacon (or British Camp, on old Iron Age hill-fort) is closest on the left, and The Worcestershire Beacon, the highest hill at 425 metres is in the far distance.

This shot is also looking North along the ridge of the Malvern Hills, this time taken from near the top of British Camp, looking toward the Worcestershire Beacon.

Nex 5, Nex 6 (IR), A7M2, A99 and a bunch of lenses.

Not a sight I prefer, but it's the sad fact here in my country I'm affraid. The shot is taken from a beautiful nature reserve here in the Netherlands. What you see behind it is one of my countries densest industry.

Another way of looking at it, Mark, is that you have preserved something instead of
looking at one industrial plant from another one where you were standing.

Great shots with vews of the city afar, parks and mountains that would otherwise pass for moon surface if not for the patches of snow and trees. : )

Thanks for sharing,
