Recently the mists of the Somerset Levels have been breaking like waves against the southern ridge of Mendip Hills.  So I headed up Wavering Down in the hope of some more.

Wavering Down

At the top of hill is a trig point, 211metres up.  It was very dark getting up there – too dark to see your feet.  Gradually, the twilight brightened the hill.

The sun glistened on the frost covering the grass.

Sunrises are beautiful – that we all know.  Its is that simple.  So why did I have this hill to myself?    I guess they are too early for some, and they do happen every day – so maybe it will be busy up here tomorrow.

From the top there are long views across the frost covered Somerset Levels and the Isle of Wedmore.
