I think it must be because yourself and Gladys venture out so much in early morning or in the evenings that you manage to capture such wonderful light and it appears that the Devonshire countryside really does "glow" in such light too.
The warm low-angle light here is simply divine and brings out all the lovely gritty textures and smooth contours of those weathered rocks perfectly and in fine contrast to the fresh green grass and the sky which has a lovely soft pink cast to it.
A very fine composition with fabulous light and colours and exceptional details and sharpness.

Une très bon cadrage et une magnifique lumière sur ce site.
Très bel effet du soleil dans le ciel

a glorious late in the day shot this. Such rich textures and a real feeling of calm serenity here. This image has a painting-esque tonal quality about it and I can imagine it gracing the inside cover of a late 70's Prog-Rock album cover, a la Roger Dean and his covers for the group YES.... Love it!
Enjoy the week ahead - B.

What a glorious image. Beautifully lit and with superb colours and clarity. The composition ain't half bad either :-) Great photography.

You chose the time of the day really well to photograph this rock formation. The light falling on the stones is so beautiful.
I also like the pattern of clouds in the sky.

The colors and light in this are beautiful, but what really strikes me is the way the clouds seem to radiate out from The rocks, making it look like a cloud of wispy lines. The colors in the sky are beautiful too, these lines create a fantastic effect. a very peaceful and inviting view.

The light and colours are terrific. The spectacular rocks are glowing like gold in the evening light and the grass looks so good I almost wish I was a sheep or a cow. ;-) The attractively shaped clouds seem to be radiating from a point hidden behind the rocks. This was clearly a perfect time of the day to visit this place.

You really have captured this in a beautiful light! It has brought out the colours, the textures and given quite a 3D effect to the tor.
I love how the clouds appear to be celebrating the majesty of the rocks and the occasion.

Beautiful light and colors on your photo, interesting result also with these lines in the sky formed by these little clouds, nice view.

Another gorgeous example of how you take advantage of the late (or early) light. This evening picture is peaceful with first class clarity.
Best wishes, Ann

You captured this scene under wonderful lighting. The angled lighting is great yielding fine color and detail. The sky is nice and you have captured it perfectly.

The clouds add a very good feeling of movement in this beautiful Devon landscape Les. The weathered rocks are attractively sculptural in the late evening light. The form and volume is very well captured and give the shot a good sense of perspective and depth.

a very accurate picture of the shooting angle. I really liked the atmosphere and the natural colors. Clouds have to give depth image.
Have a nice weekend.

Spectacular composition of immense beauty with superb use of the wide angle. The colours and sharpness are excellent and the lovely golden light makes the shot magical.
Congratulations and thanks for the great post.

The evening light is indeed stunning here, adding some lovely warm colours to the rocks. I very much enjoy the English landscape on the left hand side too.

Really great, I like those rays formed by the clouds. The composition is very good and the light also. Great sky you captured here!
