Are these the lowlands that Grauniad readers think should be flooded and turned into a fish pond, Chris?
Chris: Down there beyond Glastonbury Tor are the mystical & moist lands of which you relate Ray
Rather dreamy!
Chris: Thank you Elizabeth: I thought I would provide the photographic counterpoint to the Grand Canyon

I was expecting something for the fools - what a surprise. Lovely cloudscape, although the touch of sky top right corner does draw the eye. No doubt Chad would think that was the best bit, but I suspect you have a different agenda.
Chris: The whole point of this is to look at the sky then drop the eye to pick out the Tor and the Somerset landscape..

You might have been higher up than the Tor of Glastonbury - on a grey, misty day - but what a view! I personally love such pictures (but, sorry, rather in gentle, natural colours).
Chris: It was a toss up on my part whether or not to show this picture in colour or b&w Philine: either would have sufficed to make my point

Glad you get a few grey days as well Mr Phillips
Chris: Grey picture (it's called black & white) but sunny day
Does Mike mean top left?

Good picture Tiffo
Chris: I am obliged to you O Twiddlemeister

People seem to forget that Somerset has its fair share of vertigious (? is there such a word?) mountain terrain such as shown here and its not all under water. I can see Glastonbury Tor.
Chris: You can indeed: this picture was taken from the top of the Mendips Hills
in the old watercolor tradition, very fine image Chris
Chris: Thank you kindly JC
50 shades of grey, Chris.

Love the way the Tor stands out.
Chris: After a bit o' twiddling it did just that Pauline
Hard to tell if this is a sunlit scene or a misty grey day. Nicely done to keep the mystery.
Chris: That was I was trying to do Mary: thank you
Down south,nothing going on I see....smile I like this Chris.
Chris: Nothing like a good old fashioned landscape Frank
A fine view Chris!
Chris: Glad you like it Ronky
Do you have any pictures with the sun out over there Chris grin... this is a wonderful image of the sweeping clouds over the Sumerset landscape....petersmile
Chris: Thank you Peter - the sun actually shone today
A very good image Chris, I might well consider this among those I use at my club in November.
Chris: You are welcome Brian
Nice sky - and nice hazy landscape.
Chris: Good old Somerset, my home county Sheila

Wonderful scenery - I like your treatment of the image
Chris: A bit of twiddling and hey presto Anne!
Definitely worth taking the high ground smile
Chris: And a good telephoto lens on the NEX
For some reason, reminds me of a 1930s picture book!
Chris: I can see why you might think that Tom
An impressive view, Chris.
Chris: From high up on the Mendip Hills Graeme
