Neolithic Priddy

Over the weekend we took our tent down to Priddy high up in the Mendip Hills. On one of our walks to various watering holes we climbed past the bronze age Ashen Hill Barrows a dash under 1000 feet up a mile or so north of Priddy.

This is the result 2 RAW transfers of the same image combined, one optimised for the sky and the other for the foreground. In the old days we'd have shot in black and white and used a red filter, or if in colour used one of those dreaded Kokin graduated filters and maybe a polarzing filter to separate the blue sky from the clouds.


  1. Lovely shot - I've never seen Priddy in the sun, despite having been there dozens of times!

  2. As Roger at the Hunter's Rest says, "it's always summer on Mendip". That's why he has coal fires going most of the year!

    Lovely shot of one of my favourite local spots. I was up there late one evening recently listening to nightjars. And I don't mean empty beer glasses clinking.
