The Black Mountains in Autumn Wild Camping 2017/10/10
Making the effort to leave the routine is always worth it and
sometimes its hard. I think our bodies are naturally inclined to stay
in the warmth and reside in the predictable but to balance this there
is this inner drive to leave it all behind. The added bonus of a
meteor shower helped too. This would be a lovely trip in
the Black Mountains in Autumn.
Spending time outdoors is healing and
at this time of year everything is so especially colourful with an air

The smell of damp heathland soon hit me

up to little tucked away spot with a great view I pitched my tent just
before dark and got the lenses ready for some astrophotography…
Sunset over the hills and no sign of
the meteor shower, the large moon didn't help matters one bit.
