Another shot from back in the summer, showing the relationship of the lower farmland to the moors above.

Regards, John.

I agree with Tullio too. The distinct layers of the landscape make it a very interesting shot.

I must admit John, i admire your observational skills. Sadly I often miss some of the more simple beauty in the UK countryside and need to make more of an effort to be aware. This shot reminds me of a view i see everyday on my way to work, so from now on i will pay it more of the attention it deserves! Great shot

Very nice shot John. Is this on Dartmoor? Looks very similar to the view across to the Stiperstones in the Shropshire hills as well.

Thanks for the comments Longside and Shaun.

Longside: sometimes it takes a while to "see" a shot. This one was taken in the middle of a very hot day when the conditions for photography were frankly awful. I only had my camera with me in hopes of catching a few butterflies. As it turned out, the heat forced me to stop - just about ready to expire actually! - and look at this view. It was only after a while I spotted the shot, and even then it was a throwaway shot that I didn't think much of until I saw it on the PC much later. Sometimes you just never can tell!

Shaun: yes it's the western edge of Dartmoor, taken from near Horrabridge looking at the Staple Tors.

John.
