ON THE MOOR

ON THE MOOR ABOVE TAVISTOCK
Dartmoor is an area of the country that I visit often. My wife was brought up close to the town of Tavistock and I often spend time walking and camping in the area.
The moor covers an area of 954 square kilometres (368 square miles) and the granite upland dates from the Carboniferous period of geological history. The highest point of the moor is High Wilhays at 621 metres (2037 feet). The whole area of the moor and the towns and villages in it's vicinity is a very popular tourist destination .

Feels like a place which is breathing. History, ancient. Present and future as well. How nice it must feel being able to live there. Thank you for this nice escape into nature. Please have a good Friday.

Beautiful place. Why not just missing the bird, which propels her singing spring world. Maybe this music is appropriate... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxSMckGfQ2k

That's a beautiful moor land view!
The colors give the picture a dramatic effect.

It should be interesting to explore this place.

I can imagine that it is calm and quiet atmosphere. This photo comes from not only seeing the view, but experience the sense of the place as well.

I love sepia tones, composition, and the silhouette of the tree! Fantastic photo! I would love to visit there if I have a chance!
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day.
