Here is another reason why I love Dartmoor. A sunny afternoon with lots of clouds scuttling across the sky, a lonely tree , and just the sound of the wind and the skylarks singing as they rise into the sky. Idylic ,don't you think, or is it just me thinking that Smile

Love this composition Mike, that big sky is excellent, and that lonely tree defying the shallow rocky topsoil and standing proud, great scene well captured.

Know exactly what you mean Mike. The only trouble is that it won't look like this over the weekend. :-(
