Wasn't going to do a report on this one as it is one of the hills I head up and down quite a lot - but the unusual conditions with wind (that's not unusual!!) and blue skies (this is unusual though!!) gave some nice shots which I thought I'd share :crazy:

no photos only vids this time - SPINDRIFT HILL
