Trinity Hill

Trinity Hill is a heathland nature reserve run by the East Devon District Council. It is home to many types of heather, reptiles and, during the summer months, nightjars.

After succeeding in finding adders at the reserve earlier in the day, I returned in the evening after a cool mist drifted into our back garden. It’s presence intrigued me, so I decided to go somewhere high up so I could monitor its movements.

The scene I encountered once I reached Trinity Hill was beautiful enough; with a low mist drifting up the Axe Valley in the evening sunlight. However, as the sun went down things got even better. The high clouds began to flush a radiant pink and the mist turned to a faded purple.

I stayed until I could no longer feel my toes, at which point I drove home for a warming cup of tea.
