After a few days under the weather I was well enough to rise early this morning and see this view across West Devon toward Brentor Church,just the tonic needed....

glorious image of summer in the rolling Devon countryside, who could ask for more. Looks idyllic and so tranquil. Beautiful!

I'm dismayed to hear you've been unwell and hope you are recovering quickly. Your beautiful photography has certainly not been hindered and this is so idyllic. Wonderful colours, crisp reflections and depth. The haze/mist gives is that extra touch of magic. Simply marvellous, thanks for sharing.
Get well soon!

Hello Leslie ,
Great morning light , superb composition with the pond and sheep in the FG and the splendid patchwork of fields in the BG .

Hello Les - I'm so pleased that you are feeling better, if you were not yet on the road to recovery we would have been denied this wonderful shot and the pleasure it brings. How beautifully idyllic the scene is. I love the sharp transition between the vivid green FG dotted with livestock and the pool of water and the more distant, softly hued view across the fields to Brentor Church. You are right... this is a tonic!
Take care and warmest wishes.

This is a marvellous landscape, with its superb morning lighting and the natural hedges defining the fields and decorating the landscape so beautifully as you have clearly shown here. I like how you have composed the shot with the sheep standing before the pond in such a strong position within the frame. I also like the soft and subtle colours well captured in the sky and the overall soft feel of this image. A very beautiful capture.

This is another gorgeously fresh image from your part of the world. The sunlit pasture and the animals grazing are lovely. The slightly hazy BG of fields gives great depth. Nice to see the hedgerows being maintained and giving that patchwork effect.
Best wishes, Ann
p.s. hope your recovery continues

Hello Leslie, very nice image here. I love the sense of tranquility that this photo gives me. I guess it was early morning, right? Only in the morning you can find this smooth light. Good take.

I am glad you're feeling better and managed to capture this beautiful morning scene to share with us. I love the soft light and the patterned fields stretching far into the horizon. The composition is very attractive with the image divided into three parts, each with a different story. The animals add life and a sense of peace at the same time. Gorgeous.

I like your photo ... the view, natural colors and theme too.
It is a cliché that in many ways is technically perfect.

All the best,

A wonderful landscape, nicely divided into well contoured parcels.
There is a light mist over the land but the colours of the fields are clearly visible.
The brown cows catch more sunlight and add some warmer hues at the picture. But the position of the sheep is very good and they stand there very proud overlooking the landscape.
Best regards, Paul

Wow! What a charming landscape post due to the carefully selected moment for taking the shot. The morning light always works and also this time created a superb mood of the place. Very well done and managed photo.
Have a nice weekend!
