Watering hole by 4rky

Watering hole

Cattle stopping for a drink at a dew pond on top of Ditchling beacon.

Completely round, man-made water reservoirs, dew ponds have been features of the area for hundreds of years as a source of water for cattle and sheep.

They stand out in the landscape as a geometric anomaly.

Thank you for all the lovely comments. Dithling is a beautiful spot with great views. I had gone there specifially to see if I could capture a good shot of the dew pond. And right on cue, a herd of cows turned up and made the scene so much better. I couldn't believe my luck :)
Thanks for getting this to TP and PP!
