Autumn in the Olchon Valley

Here are some autumn images from the Olchon Valley on the border between Herefordshire and the Black Mountains in Wales. 

This valley was used as the setting for Owen Sheers' debut novel, Resistance (Faber and Faber, 2007), where,  in an imagined 1944 in which Russia fell and the D-day landings were unsuccessful half of Britain is occupied. In the isolated Olchon Valley, a group of farm women, abandoned by their husbands and sons, are forced to endure winter alongside the occupying force. 

This image, taken from the foot of Black Hill, won the Photographer of the Year award at the Spring Greens Fair where I called it....
