Looking west from Butser

 
At this time of year the warm days and cold clear nights produce some spectacular views from Butser Hill, the highest point on the South Downs. At 270 metres high, the three-sixty degree panorama is one of the best and is easily reached by a short walk from the main car park. A popular spot with photographers and film crews as are the autumn colours of the QE Forest across the other side of the A3.

 For those interested in photography, or just great views, a new exhibition has opened in the visitor centre. ‘The Landscape Photographer of the Year’ runs from Friday the 14th of October through to Sunday the 27th November.
This exhibition celebrates all that is best about the UK with special categories including Network Rail’s ‘Lines in the Landscape’ award and the ‘Sunday Times Magazine Choice’.
The photos are judged by a prestigious panel of photographers, editors and leading figures from within the industry. The 2010 winner, with a £10,000 prize, was Mr A.Spencer with a superb image of Corfe Castle in Dorset.
