Treescape

A view through some lovely moss-laden Beech trunks to the village of West Bagborough (I think) from Lydeard Hill on the Quantocks, Somerset, England.

    • Thank you Terry!! I had never visited this part of England before (the Quantock Hills). Somerset, generally, is a very interesting county full of wonderful landscapes and scenery.

    • Many thanks Nandini. There are some lovely trees in this area and the colours and patterns in the landscape are wonderful. I expect it looks fantastic in the Summer too!

    • Oh, you really could! I was on a quest on that day though to prove to myself that I could climb the highest hill on the Quantocks: Will’s Neck. I got to the top and stood at the trig point (although I sort of cheated getting there!). The descent was one of the worst and best things I’ve done on a hill though. It was almost vertical and I was sure I was going to tumble over and over.

      • NOT one for me to try then, a bit like my climb up Catbells in the Lake District. Enjoyed the walk up and down apart from the scrambling to reach the top, I would have rathered gone round the peak and met Hubby on the other side. 🙂 Well done for making it up … and back down again. 🙂

        • Ha ha! I’m impressed that you climbed Catbells which is way higher than Will’s Neck – the descent of which was more like a slide and a hope for the best than a walk! I’m not a natural climber – I have small steps and am not athletically built by any stretch of the imagination! I thought I’d get a bit of practise in before I go to the Dales in the Summer!

    • Thank you Gary. I can’t remember the height of that hill but it enabled some wonderful views – albeit misty ones. I was en-route to the highest spot which wasn’t that many feet higher than this area. Yes – it does have a very strong ‘Lord of the Rings’ vibe about it!
