Chepstow castle I presume. Not a brilliant photo but I got quite a few big castles on the way....
A bit of nothingness, but strangely pleasing when really blown up. Offa's dyke doesn't really manage to follow the Wye very well in this stretch. The Wye valley way may do as well, not sure.
A pleasant 'little' house. I ran into tons of these on the way!
This one is about the light, which was lovely on the first couple of days. Strong & filtered through trees.
The blankets of wild garlic were a feature all the way. The bank is actually (I think) the dyke itself.
Quite pleasant, slightly flat lighting when blown up.
Not a great photo, but notable for being the one really good view I got of the black mountains and friends until around may hill at the end of day 2. Offa's dyke goes through those, I was going round to the E.
Seemed an amusing concept, but the Thames does rise quite close.
Lovely wee pigs. Incredibly active too.
With added bluebells! I ignored this message from the campaign against pork consumption ;)
Quite rare to have the light strong enough to make this work.
Kind of familar from some places :)
Some incredibly strong directional sun light doing this.
Looking up from the riverside footpath by the Wye. Steep!
More incredibly strong directional sunlight coming down from what was by now the banks around Symonds yat rock.
This is almost more SFX than a good photo in some ways, but its natural.
A slight surprise somehow, although I'm sure there's a few of these up & down the Wye.
Now this really *was* a surprise. Just wandering around minor lanes between Symonds yat and may hill.
Yappy defiance of course.
This looked good on the map (very prominent) and was on the ground. Blue bells and vast views. Another sandstone hill, which I got quite a lot of in at times.
The road not travelled - black mountains & friends.
The next days walking - the main Malvern ridge looms.
Is this too cute?
