Rainbow Snapper

Rainbow Snapper

You should never put yourself in danger when taking a photograph. And I didn’t, when I snapped this rainbow above Caer Caradoc from the top of Ragleth Hill.

Snapper Simon’s Shropshire Summer Solitude

Snapper Simon’s Shropshire Summer Solitude

At the end of Ragleth Hill, the vista across South Shropshire is absolutely glorious. Not an electricity pylon in sight, or much in the way of man-made objects. It’s an amazing view, it was summary, and I had it all to myself. Well, not quite. Because if you click on this link it’ll take you…
