Went up once more to one of my favourite photo spots up in the mountains here called Hollywell.
I also have a previous thread with some images Here.

Nestled in the Blue Mountains range (the highest point on the island) lies Hollywell National Park at 4000ft or so above the city of Kingston.
One of the things I love about being at Hollywell is due to the altitude it feels like a totally different country.
Grey skies, cool air, pine forests, not the usual greenery of the tropics and brilliant blue skies, it's a welcome change for me!

Tried my hand at more landscapes, frustrating but fun in its own way.

The sun is peeking out behind those clouds.

Hollywell Ranger Station
There is a postcard feeling to this scene that I really like.

Rain and Mud is the life of a Farmer.

So after wandering down the trail I decided to take a left.
I noticed that the 'path' seemed to widen and had a bit of vegetation in the middle.


Curious.

You see dear viewers this is what passes for a road way up in the Mountains here.
I realised this to my suprise after I turned the corner and encountered a farmer smartly dressed in his SUV who promptly stopped to tell me in true Jamaican fashion his tale of woe.


"Rain and mud is the life of a Farmer"

Had to agree with him as the clouds surrounded us once again and the tropical sun failed to pierce it.

What lies around the bend?

"The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say."


Quoted liberally from The Lord of the Rings.

Any thoughts and comments greatly appreciated.
