Lockdown Through A Lens: Rob Woolf

Reader Rob Woolf's photograph of snow on the hills on the edge of Kington

by Webmaster, 2nd March 2021

More snow scenes as we wave goodbye to winter

At almost 400 metres high, you get some great views from Bradnor Hill in Herefordshire. And none better than this, as reader Rob Woolf's glorious shot proves.

"It was taken from the edge of the Kington / Bradnor golf course, looking towards Wales - literally on the border - after the recent snow," says Rob. But it's not just the serenity of the image that lends it to being a true lockdown shot.

"The A44 runs through the middle of the picture in the valley below, and was empty," Rob explains. "Normally on a Saturday you can hear the roar of motorbikes going into Wales, but this Saturday was especially quiet. The golf club was closed and it was just me and the dog. And silence!"

Sounds heavenly. A silver lining to lockdown if ever there was one!

Interesting fact for you: Kington Golf Club boasts the highest 18-hole golf course in England.

Got a picture taken in lockdown (any of them!)?

Send it to us for inclusion in our Lockdown Through A Lens exhibition. Please keep your file sizes down to less than 1Mb - we only need images in 72 dpi. But do give them a title if you can and a bit of background about both the image and yourself (the more the merrier), including your full name and where you are from. It'd be great to have you involved.
