Hot weather this summer has transformed a juicy English landscape into somewhat surreal scorched land. This shot was taken on Little Solsbury Hill. The hill plateaued at 625 feet (191 m) overlooking village of Batheaston and the surrounding area with spectacular views of the city of Bath from the east. The hill is the site of an Iron Age hill fort, is maintained by the National Trust, and is within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This is the first time I visited the place scouting for a different location to shoot the August Supermoon on the following day. The flat top of the hill dominated by various species of dried thistle plants and dry grass making it looks like Mediterranean arid landscape thanks to incredibly dry and hot weather this during last few weeks. The setting sun enhanced this feeling even more. Little Solsbury Hill, Batheaston near Bath, BANES, England, UK.

The Supermoon on the night was impressive and this image doesn’t give full judgement to the natural spectacle of the rising Full moon glowing with pink glow thank to hot weather. Event at the moment of moonrise it was about 30°C (86°F). This image was taken from Little Solsbury Hill raising above 191 m (625 feet) above Batheaston (part of it lighten up in the foreground). The hill is the site of an Iron Age hill fort is flat with wonderful views of the city of Bath and surrounding area. It is maintained by the National Trust and is within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The moon was taken separately to keep some details in (f/8; 5 sec at 300 mm); foreground (f/13; 32 sec at 240 mm) blended in PS.
