Glastonbury foothills

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 22 August 2012 in Landscape & Rural.

I had just driven through Glastonbury and had to stop to take a few shots as the sky looked so blue, doesn't seem to happen much this year !!

Canon EOS 500D 1/1000 second F/11.0 ISO 200 18 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Glad you got a bit of sun. Sounds like it's been nothing but rain for the UK this summer. Those clouds make for a wonderful shot.

A brief rest stop ... and to catch the silhouette of a prancing horse on the tree ... faced to the cloud also prancing ... Do you see what I see, or both? regards Adela
