Dawn at the Beech
Pelting Drove leads on from Deerleap towards the Mendip village of Priddy in Somerset. As you pass over top of the hill from Wells there is a clump of beech trees on the right.
At this time of year the early morning sun cuts through low to the ground, brushing against the trees, through a gate, and spills on to the drove.
I have photographed these trees in mist, and in snow. But during an autumn dawn they are at their best.
Early in the year the mist between the trees creates a bar code.
