I find myself cloud watching…these are from Hanger Down Clump, South Dartmoor and Leather Tor. I have been working at the top of the moor and find it hard to come back down as the clouds and light change so quickly up there.
In between the showers a wonderful evening walk over the tops, heather and gorse, pink purple and yellows. Haytor , Saddle, Top, Pil and Rippon Tor……
August has brought changeable weather across Dartmoor, but I loved an early morning glimpse of blue sky and ponies….. then clouds and cattle…
Home. Evening Walk along the River Dee to the corner of the Peninsula. Views across Liverpool Bay. Silhouette of Hilbre Islands with the Point of Ayr and Snowdonia Range in the light of the setting sun. In oceanography terms this estuary is a Region of Freshwater Influence……..water, fresh, salt, heat, tide and shelf….
Fabulous day in the Studio. Sun shining. Colours. 6 Music. Views over our beautiful South Hams countryside.
