Cheddar Gorge: No Goats

I spent Saturday afternoon wandering about on the Mendip looking for feral goats but didn’t find a single one. I finally ended up in Cheddar Gorge which is spectacular any time of the year, but on a beautiful sunny day with storm clouds blowing in from the sea its worth getting up above the tourists and just enjoying the view. Spot the climber.


Nikkor AF-S 85mm f1.4G on a tripod. I was facing into the sun so a 2 stop hard ND Grad filter plus a 2 stop ND were used to keep the exposure balanced. Perfect afternoon for scrambling about on the rocks.

I am a designer and photographer. I live with my wife and our two dogs in the Welsh Marches, a land full of history, legends, mountains, rivers and dragon's breath; a place where animism thrives. To our north are the Cambrian Mountains, the Elenydd, a vast plateau so ancient that its mountains now have the appearance of steeply rounded moorland hills; to the east is England; to the south stand the Black Mountains and in the west the Brecon Beacons rise around the twin summits of Pen y Fan and Corn Du, the highest mountain in West Wales.
