Walking The Ridgeway

Walking The Ridgeway National Trail in South West England in May/June this year, I had expected to have plenty of opportunities for some photography. The walking route from Wiltshire through Oxfordshire to Buckinghamshire is quoted as being Britain’s oldest road. It winds across some of England’s most picturesque countryside taking in the Chiltern hills and the chalk ridge of the Berskhire Downs.

Unfortunately, Spring was not kind and most of the walk was spend huddled under hoods trying to escape the driving rain (and on one occasion, hailstones). Not ideal for photography. However, on the odd occasion when the weather settled and the sun appeared, there was a lovely soft light which was great for capturing some black and white landscapes.
