A View from the Firehills

View from the FirehillsAt the east end of Hastings Country Park, close to Fairlight there are rolling hills known collectively as the Firehills. They are named after the gorse fires that are frequently occurring during dry periods. It is will worth a trip there as the Firehills provide an excellent view over Rye Bay and Pett Level. On a clear day you can see the White Cliffs of Dover and even over to France.

On this day is was a little hazy. A stiff breeze was blowing and quite a few clouds were in the sky, keeping away from the coast though. Dungeness is just about visible, the North Downs can be made out on the horizon to the left.

I’ve always tried to photograph this view but a single shot never seems to do it justice. This is a composite of 12 different images. It is a large image and best viewed on my Panoramio page. You can do this by clicking on the image.
