I had a request for a panorama of the Somerset Levels from a specific field high up in the Mendip Hills.  This week the weather had been so fantastic I headed up passed Model Farm and up the hill to find that view.

The evening light was pretty much perfect.  A clear autumn evening with clear skies all the way to Glastonbury Tor and a few fluffy clouds.

I reaching the field above Wookey Hole (and Wells) and it was full of sheep.  They were very interested in what I was doing, and I was keen to include them as foreground interest.
