Burrator Reservoir within Dartmoor National Park is surrounded by mixed woodland which sharply contrasts with the open moor and rugged Dartmoor tors. The reservoir is popular with walkers, cyclists and horse riders due to its wealth of footpaths and bridleways. Many of the trails lead on to Dartmoor so it makes an ideal starting point for longer trips.The circular walk which follows the lanes around the water is ideal for families as it is easy going and flat. It will take between 1.5 - 2 hours to complete and is approximately 3.5 miles. Parking is possible at various locations including the Quarry car park, Norsworthy Bridge and the Dam.Low cost bank fishing for both rainbow and brown trout is available at this scenic water; permits are sold at the garage in Yelverton.

A fine composition with the silk like waters of the stream leading the viewer toward this delightful old bridge. Excellent tonal contrasts and top class clarity.

A very good photograph.
I appreciate the brilliant luminosity of your picture. The piece of tree in water breaks the 'picture of a nice bridge' and renders the picture more interesting.
The long exposure add a dreamlike feeling but I don't understand how you got the duck so sharp ;o) Is the duke made of clay? :o)

Hello Les - An attractive detail shot which highlights some of the typical elements of the Dartmoor landscape. Your 4 second exposure has given the water an attractive silky sheen which contrast well with the rough texture of the bridge. This close crop composition works well and has been thoughtfully composed. The 'S' created by the river adds a nice bit of movement through the shot. Warm regards Rosemary

Excellent shot of the stream flowing down.Very good management of light and sharpness.Small aperture and long exposure has helped you get the desired misty effect on the surface of the water.Excellent image quality. Very well done. TFS.

Another quiet and beautiful landscape from you. The long exposure effect gives that dreamy quality to the water. A lovely old bridge nestling amongst the trees and ferns - super.
Kind Regards, Ann
