On clear cold winter mornings mystical mists hang over the Somerset Levels.
High up the south facing slopes of the Mendip Hills is the perfect spot to take in the whole landscape.
The Tor provides a great focal point in the otherwise flat levels. In the Axe Valley are a series of small hills: Ben Knowle Hill, Callow Hill, Chalcroft Hill and more. My favourite is Ben Knowle Hill which is so good they named it three times: Ben from the Gaelic for hill; from the Saxons the word Cnolle for a summit; then after the Norman conquest came the word Hill.
In thick mist the hills rise above the mist as a series of islands across the Axe Valley.
St Cuthbert’s Church in the tiny City of Wells stands at the head of the valley.
This robin decided to pose for a quick picture.
