Standing guard on the track to Wavering Down I was persuaded to stay and photograph Cross Plain instead.

There was a lot of sheep this morning – not all with the same single minded mission.

Cross Plain

Frost covers the level ground of Cross Plain in the western end of the Mendip Hills in Somerset.  The low winter sun had just risen over the hill throwing long shadows across the white ground towards the ponies.  They stood stationary facing the sun, sheltered from the chill by the hedge.

Following such a warm wet dull winter the chance to walk on white ground was a wonderful opportunity that could not be missed.

Wavering Down seemed to have avoided the frost.  How lucky to live in a hill farm with this view in the morning.

A great place for a run, if you have the energy to get up the hill this early in the morning.
