Sunset in the Welsh Marches
First one then…I thought on a grey day like this a bit of summer sun would be good! The Welsh Marches are a name for the border region (of England & Wales) extending from the Severn Estuary to the Shropshire hills, which were once ruled over by Norman barons. The area is characterised by rolling farmland, broad river valleys and market towns. This picture is from one of those rolling hills, just off the road between the villages of Kilpeck and Pontrilas.
I was lucky in that I had my camera in the car after a day with family, and happened on a gateway with a stunning view. Quite a lot of my photos are a bit like that, but then I think that’s kind of what it’s all about -capturing a moment.
