Another day, another shoot in a different location, where Catherine, David, and myself were joined this time by our Great Friend Sue and David aka Aggpup, who spent a few days in Dawlish.

This picture was taken on Combestone Tor in Dartmoor National Park, above the Hamlet of Hexworthy in Devon.
I particularly liked this bare stripped tree against the desolate background, giving a sense of loneliness.

    I don’t see desolation and loneliness, I see peace, quiet, no phone, no TV, no cars, no people…bliss, and a glorious scene

  • Thank you kindly Jesika. It will not be lonely there this weekend as the Ten Tors Challenge starts today. xx
