Photographer's Note

The little village in the foreground is Wyche, with Upper Colwall in the backgrownd. In reality this is the foothills of the Malverns looking west in the late autumn sun.. The tones of autumn were beautiful, sharpened by the crisp cool air.

The Malverns Hills are a very special place all on their own...(officially designated as Area of Outstanding National Beauty (ANOB)) .... wonderful walks, beautiful views and stunning sunsets.. well worth visiting next time you are in England- especially if you are a rambler.

From the Official Malvern Hills website:

The Malvern Hills and Commons
The Malvern Hills have been described as a mountain range in miniature, the eight mile ridge containing some of the oldest rocks in Britain, their craggy outline giving the impression of uplands further west. They were good enough for Mallory to come and walk in preparation for Everest whilst staying with colleagues at Malvern College. Today you can enjoy over 4500 acres of open countryside climbing to the highest point at Worcestershire Beacon or enjoying the quiet ramblings along the wooded slopes.
