ON EXMOOR....

TREE ON EXMOOR
Exmoor is a National Park in the south west of England. The area of the park is spread over two counties  - 71% is in the county of Somerset and 29% is in Devon. The entire park covers an area of 267.5 sq miles.
It is primarily an upland area with a dispersed population mainly living in small villages and hamlets.

Before it was a National Park Exmoor was a Royal Forest and hunting ground which was sold off in 1818. Exmoor was designated a National Park in 1954 and is named after the main river that flows out of the district - the River Exe.

This is my favourite image so far. I'll keep hanging in for a better one but have my doubts I'll see it. This is perfection.

Thanks Robert.
I always think of Exmoor as being Feminine and Dartmoor feeling more masculine.. Exmoor is beautiful and Datmoor is more rugged.

I love the story behind the picture - makes the picture just that more special.

Thanks for dropping by Trevor and leaving the comment about the sepia picture. I did consider it looking better with a darker sky - but it was sooo bright that day, and I don't edit my pictures when I take them. I like to leave them as natural as possible. :-)

so is this blog more for your pictures, and the other about cycling? Must be tough maintaining two blogs - I struggle with one. :-)
