Yesterday evening we visited the high moor between Moretonhampstead and Widdecombe where we came across this lovely scene.
At this time of year there are areas where Dartmoor is ablaze with the colours of Gorse and Heather

So beautiful landscape with all these flowers like a carpet, good sharpness and depth, tfs.

Stunning colors...it looks like a soft fluffy carpet but no doubt to roll down this hill you would discover plenty of brambles and nettles too :)
Your whole composition is st on, the road from left is placed perfectly, while up above, the sky seems to be trying to emulate the beauty and color of the ground. Really nicely done.

A beautiful scene but one which also, sadly, makes us realise that summer will soon be over as autumn approaches.
But what a glorious day you had yesterday to take this lovely photograph! The sunlight on the bright yellow gorse and rich purple heather makes them stand out magnificently beneath a glorious sky. You have composed this picture very well and the narrow roadway on the left leads us nicely into the image and off to the horizon.
Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite detail and clarity.
P.S. How on Earth do you capture such gorgeous skies? I'm sure you didn't use a polariser for this one because at such a short focal length (10mm) the sky would have been "patchy" and the use of a polariser would have been pretty obvious. Or did you use a ND graduated filter? Or did you just choose exactly the right day and time to take this lovely picture?

Wonderful change of purple and yellow on this moor.
The sky full of cloud packs and lines is a great backdrop for this beautiful landscape picture.
Well composed with the diagonal line of the road.
Best regards, Paul

Beautiful plain with the mixture of yellow, purple and green, crowned with the half clouded sky.
A long road to nowhere?

This is a great shot of this beautiful countryside. The road leads the eye through the shot creating a fine diagonal. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness and DOF.

Lovely composition full of charming colours. Every element beautiful including the cloud formations in the sky. Superb depth and sharpness. Dartmoor, then, is not all about tors and marshes, but can be this beautiful! Excellent camera work and thanks for sharing it.
Have a great new week ahead.

Very suitable title for this image as the colours are what makes this image. It's not just the abundant summer flowers but also you were blessed with wonderful dramatic sky which adds heaps of mood to the shot.

Marvellous field of gorse & heather in such concentration lovely how well the different colours compliment and contrast to deep blue sky! The diagonal road is so well placed as strong lead line. Superb
