Chapel Carn Brea
Thursday 30th August 2012
It is cold and windy on the top of the little hill, known by some as the first and last hill in England. It is not September yet, but the nights are drawing in and one feels autumn is around the corner. We have just had the wettest summer for a hundred years. The past three have not been good and this one was terribe. Let us hope for a good summer in 2013. The views are magnificent, no matter which direction you look. Looking west is Land’s End, the Longships Lighthouse, the Atlantic Ocean and 3,000 miles away the USA. I decide to take close ups of the heather and gorse; not easy as the flowers are past their best.
I couldn’t find any heathers good enough to photo in close up so in this next shot used them as out of focus background
I don’t seem to have any photos showing the views from Chapel Carn Brea or showing the actual hill. The closest I have is an experimental Hipstamtic shot.
This was taken last year. Yes, I know, you’ll have to imagine what the hill really looks like. I have put it in because immediately after taking this photo I turned around 180 degrees and took this one. We had just been to the top of the hill and were now walking the few miles home. I quite like this shot.
