Nash Point

Cliff Fort

Nash Point (Cliff Fort) by GLADMAN Note sure switching to b/w to try and counter the extreme conditions successfully conveys the atmosphere I wanted .... but here 'tis, nonetheless. Looking from Castell y Dryw to a small section of the fantastic coastal rock pavements of Glamorgan.

What a place. Love that, the B&W works very well there. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Reminds me very much of Yorkshire, although in an entirely different context. The b/w was an accident, gloved hands mucking up the controls on my dad's compact digital I use when the weather's too bad for the DSLR.... but thought the results acceptable. I think colour is vital in conveying mood, but when there virtually is no colour due to mist/rain, b/w seems to give better definition? Not sure what the pros have to say about that....

Sites like this prove that not all routes lead to the hills, SC. Far from it. Work around injuries etc and when you do go high just spend the same time over less distance.... chill out and take more in. I've been doing that for years now due to my own problems.

Sound advice as ever. My main difficulty is that my walks start from the nearest bus stop, so to get to the tops usually takes a pretty lengthy run-in to even get to the "start" of most ascent routes.

I took Bladup's recent comments to heart about what's on your doorstep and am filling in some overdue gaps closer to home in any case. :-)
