Same shot sixteen years apart

Posted by Picasa
These two pictures were taken standing on the same spot with an interval of nearly sixteen years: the top photo was taken by Lara Unger, in August 1993, and the bottom one by C-H-M, in April 2009, standing just to the south of the viewing platform (demolished by 2009), looking south, down the Iron Age rampart, with Barrow Wake on the horizon. Interesting to see the effect of the maintenance by the Cotswold wardens: the erosion of path on the top of the rampart appears to have been arrested and the rampart looks better for the absence of bushes. Lara definitely has more interesting light and finer clouds.
