Mist fills the Axe Valley looking towards Cheddar in Somerset.
Half way up Crook Peak and it’s time to take some photographs. Many people have seen its peak as they drive passed on the M5 near Weston-super-Mare. The 191m high limestone peak is a prominent feature of the landscape.
Using the Sunseeker app I hoped the sun would raise up the valley above the village of Compton Bishop.
Once I got into position the mist rolled in blocking the sun. Soon I could see nothing of the view.
Then the mist cleared as quickly as it came.
Aircraft contrails are annoying. I remember how clear the skies were when planes were grounded because of dust from a volcano in Iceland.
The mist is rolling back up the hill.
Climbing the small cliff to the top and the view was even better. A group of early morning runners enjoyed the view and the end of their exhausting climb.
The mist came and went several times. A group of buzzards circle in the warming air.
Mist poured over Compton Hill.
Time to start the descent back down to the car park.
