The Treacle Tower

Glastonbury, Somerset

Fog and mist form quite often on autumn mornings on the Somerset Levels. However, it is very rare for mist to linger low over the landscape through the day until nightfall. When this happens Glastonbury Tor can be photographed from the east, looking west with the Quantock Hills on the distant horizon. Such west facing views give a great sense of the vastness of the flat landscape and just how much the Tor dominates the skyline. I have wanted to photograph this view for many years but such conditions occur only once every year or two. My patience paid off.
