This is a view from Billacombe near Chillaton looking toward the Lyd and Lew valleys.
The big Beech tree in the FG is probably living on borrowed time having been damaged by high winds last winter.

Wonderful landscape, Leslie
Good composition and the colors are beautiful despite the lack of sunlight.

Your photograph creates the same sort of reaction, in me, as Constable's paintings. It is that timeless, green landscape, an almost indefinable, rural quality!
The leads are good, the features well placed and details nicely accessible.
Have a great w/e,

A fine composition with this beautiful English landscape. The exposure perfect despite the low light, in fact the somewhat subdued colours have enhanced the quiet and peaceful mood of this location. Lovely framing with the two trees and included foreground.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.

Perfect picture with great sharpness. Excellent classical composition with the tree in front, the wide landscape and lovely half clouded sky.

I love this! So simple in composition and yet beautifully English and irresistible. A postcard from the West Country which makes me want to jump in the car and enjoy it first hand. Captivating!
Enjoy your weekend - B.

The rolling hills of Devon are really pleasant and inviting indeed. Nice composition with lots of foreground interest and a lush green vegetation under a gorgeous sky.
have a great weekend

This was not a very bright day, but the clouds create a rather attractive sky and make the colours of the fields and woods pleasantly mild. You made a straightforward but very nice composition of what seems to me a very typical English scenery.

A Bev says your capture a landscape shown in good paintings, fields with different shadow and crops, old trees as frame with an inviting path going back
Well done, regards
