More from the ice divide

Purely by chance, this was posted on Facebook today by Stephen John (no relation).  Fabulous image -- taken on the remote upland road to the Elan Valley.  Again, this is typical ice divide terrain, maybe covered by relatively stagnant and cold-based ice for most of the Devensian cold episode.  That means maybe 50,000 years of ice cover, with remarkably little landscape modification.

A sheep partially collided with my motorbike up there in the Elan Valley near the reservoirs back in the mid 1970's (nearest I ever came to a motorcycle accident, thank goodness). I watched the sheep bound down the other side of the road towards the valley floor. It had appeared suddenly from the grass above the road.
