|Bo Peep and Firle Hill Climb|
|Firle Hill climb 2016|
The weather was a bit cloudy at first but as the sun started to break through the lure of the South Downs got the better of me and I wandered off to explore the route towards Alfriston .

Looking north over the Sussex Weald saw a patchwork of freshly harvested fields .
A short diversion off the South Downs Way took me down a chalk track where the view just had to be painted! As the Summer draws to a close and Autumn enters in then so the colors of the landscapes change. Much more subdued with longer shadows cast by the early Autumn sun....

One of the familiar sign posts along the South Downs Way where the wonderful views over the Sussex Weald fade off into the horizon.
Late Summer flowers put on their final display of colour among the wild and windswept grass. (The view between Firle Beacon and Alfriston)
