Long Mynd Layers
I still find it hard to believe that in the all the years I have lived here I had not walked up to The Trig Point on top of The Long Mynd! I had always meant to but paths had normally taken me in other directions and it just never came to pass.

Until November 2016 a hellish week cooped up indoors working at my desk and going stir crazy, to put it mildly. Imagine my delight when a Tog friend called by out of the blue and suggested a sunset shoot up on The Long Mynd. Who was I to turn down a drive especially when someone else would be driving and I could admire the scenery.

The light was nearly passing over by the time we got up to Pole Cottage but there was just enough. A brisk, mightily chilly, (actually it was bloody freezing and blowing a gale) battling walk to get me up the hill without pirouetting to the ground with a giddy attack, gotta love vertigo, or the left side collapsing as is it's want when I attempt to do crazy things, like walk any distance, or heaven forbid climb an incline!

My mate being the absolute diamond geezer he is carrying the camera, you know, so that didn't get damaged should I fall ;) Me I can bruise and break but let's save the equipment, good man that. No point taking the tripod it would have blown over! Well worth the hike (ok hike for me) It was simply breathtaking and I didn't have much spare by this point anyway, one of those places that whilst you stand there, taking it all in, you wish you could share the views, amazing scenery, with everyone you know just because words are going to fail you in trying to describe it.

The light was glowing, the wind was blowing, my eyes were streaming, I think my fingers had dropped off halfway up, my hair was in so many knots I think it had joined the navy and I was the happiest girl in the world right then.
