Band of Fire

I had to pop out and stretch my legs despite it being a wet and totally dull day. I shot this looking back from a hillock (we call it a mountain) called Ysgyryd Fawr. It sits just north of Abergavenny which itself is located at the mouth of a ten mile or so long valley. On Ysgyryd ridge there was a 30mph wind gusting to 50, making standing rather fun. The Wind was channelling large pulses of rain down aforementioned valley which at times was illuminated by a seeming solitary break in the think clouds. It was a rather interesting and spectacular localised phenomenon. Fascinating to watch and much more dynamic than the photo. I was actually concentrating on trying to stand still enough to make the shot.
