There’s a quiet war going on in West Dorset between Lewesdon Hill and Pilsdon Pen. One is taller than the other, but it depends on who you ask as to which one comes out on top. Lewesdon Hill has trees crowning it, so if you take these into account it just has the edge. Both are the sites of Iron Age hill forts but, due to the trees on Lewesdon, Pilsdon has better views of the Marshwood Vale.
This photograph was taken from Pilsdon Pen and shows the view towards Lewesdon Hill. It had been an exceptionally misty morning and as the mist receded long shadows draped themselves across the landscape. This particular section of hillside caught my eye. I love the rolling hills, vivid grass and silhouetted trees.
