Sunday Post: Landscape

As part of my decision to focus more often on the UK, my photo for the Sunday post this week was taken on Dartmoor, hope you like its stark beauty.

At 368 square miles, Dartmoor is the largest and wildest area of open country in Southern England, this shot is taken from Houndtor and the granite outcrop in the distance is Haytor. I believe that some areas on the moor were used in the filming of Warhorse.

This is part of Jakes Sunday post here, http://jakesprinters.wordpress.com/2012/02/25/sunday-post-landscape/

  1. Absolutely stunning Gilly! Do you know how nice it is to come to everyone’s blog and see all the different photo’s from all over the world? It’s awesome. Beautiful post! 🙂

    1. I agree! It’s brilliant and only this morning I was telling a friend how lovely it is to have glimpses into other peoples real worlds and not just what you read in the media. And I’ve learnt so much as well 🙂

  2. Breathtaking! My kind of landscape for sure. I sure would like to ride that area for a few days and check it out first hand from the back of a horse.

    1. There are opportunities for riding and Dartmoor ponies are a recognised breed, not big enough for adults to ride. They all belong to someone but roam freely on the moor. Each September they are rounded up and some are sold.

  3. Looking at the lovely Southern English Landscapes…Even way down South in London Town…it’s easy to see how it has become the fairy Tale capitol, and land of the Giants.

    1. It’s funny but on the moor you find people taking part in various degrees of activity, perhaps you would be the one that drives to a car park at the bottom of Haytor and gets out a deck chair and flask and sits looking at it all day!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
      But I don’t think so!

  4. Love your picture, and love the area down there. Also haven’t visited for awhile.
    I have tried SO many times to post my link on the WordPress site, but they won’t accept it.
    IsobelandCat has tried to post it for me too.
    What is the secret of posting a link on WordPress? Any ideas?
    Would you try and post it for me?!

  5. The one thing I love most, truly most, about WordPress is my glimpse into other countries. Here I sit in Australia, seeing such beauty out there in the world. Great capture.

I would love to hear from you . . .
