Black Down, Somerset

United Front

With storm Eunice sweeping across the UK, I wanted to try and photograph some element of it without risking mine or anyone else's safety. I waited until the most dangerous part of the storm had passed before heading out to Black Down, the hightest point on the Mendip Hills. The height wasn't the important part though, it was this group of trees and the unspoilt views of the sky that drew me to this place. I was out for a couple of hours, and witnessed both beautiful blue skies and huge, menacing grey clouds. Out of all the clouds that passed overhead, this one did the trick in echoing the form of the trees.
