Painting a picture two ways

Thanks to John for this image of SmallPox Hill near Uley. It was taken just before sunrise this Wednesday morning.

If you read the following email I received today it just goes to show that words can paint a stunning picture as well. Many thanks to Rich Tebb for his wonderful words.

Hi Mark

The joys of dog-walking in the dark! I just got back from walking the dogs on Painswick Beacon, and what a glorious morning! The entire span of River, Forest and Vale is marked out by the red lights on tall structures - from the twin radio masts of Droitwich across to Ledbury, down to the Severn bridges, Cardiff in the distance, and even the mast on the Mendips above Wells. The snake of headlights along the A48, and the clusters of lights that mark out Lydney, Cinderford, Great Malvern, Bishop's Cleeve, and of course Gloucester and Cheltenham. An orange glow on the eastern skyline. Simply stunning!

Cheers Rich
