Truleigh Hill – Hawthorns and a Panoramic

Hawthorn at Dawn

Continuing to explore the area of the South Downs between Brighton & Steyning, I took a wander up Truleigh Hill, just along from Devils Dyke and the Fulking Escarpment.

I thought I’d try out my first Panoramic shot, as I haven’t stitched images together in a ,long time. Sadly, this image really lacks subject matter, but I liked the colour of the sky and had nothing to do until the sun came up at around 4.30am.

I also found a rather interesting old concrete foundation, and I couldn’t quite figure out whether it might have been for an old trough or an old shepherds hut. The pipe sticking out of the concrete intrigued me, and I thought it made for some key point of interest in an otherwise rather barren landscape.

Once the sun came up, it wasn’t at all what I expected, and didn’t fall on the landscape in the way I wanted it to. In fact, I couldn’t really find much in terms of subject matter from this particular spot, although there was a youth hostel and radio station on top which was pretty interesting. There wasn’t much for the portfolio on this shoot, but I liked how the light finally broke through and illuminated the hawthorns and the landscape to the west.
