You are certainly getting about !! Shame about the weather, I think it was pretty much the same all over, certainly was on the Black Mount on Saturday. But the weather like this can create some lovely atmospheric pics a you have captured :D :D

I love that last Ben Loyal pic - it must have been great to experience "in the flesh".
