Glastonbury Tor, England

Description:
Glastonbury Tor can be seen for miles outside of Glastonbury. In order to get to it, one must walk across several muddy pastures and fields and endure the climb. Views from the top are amazing.
Objectives:
I hiked up a vertical hill through cow pastures and mud to get this photograph of the Glastonbury Tor. At the time that I snapped this photograph, I was doubtful that it would turn out. I was in the shadow of the Tor, and the light shining through the other side of the tower was very bright. The couple sitting on the bench through the doorway are enjoying the view!
