Bredon Hill - the view and the poem. by 

As they flow south, the rivers Avon and Severn gradually converge on Tewkesbury as their flood-plains combine to form a wide, flat stretch of wonderfully fertile land between the Malvern Hills to the west and the Cotswolds to the east – this is the Vale of Evesham. Bredon Hill rises quietly and gently out of this landscape just east of the Avon. Climb it on a clear summer’s day and you will see all around you the fields of the farms that make the patchwork summed up so memorably by A E Housman as the “coloured counties”, Worcestershire and Gloucestershhire.

This summer view of Bredon Hill was taken from the Malvern Hills looking east across the Vale of Evesham to the Cotswold Hills beyond.

I am based near Winchester in mid-Hampshire (UK) and have enjoyed photographing a wide variety of subjects for over 40 years, though the digital revolution has been a real boon.
