It is generally accepted though not completely true that the River Tamar is where Devon ends and Cornwall begins.
The 50 mile long waterway provides a natural county boundary, starting just four miles short of Bude on the north Cornwall coast and flowing south, reaching the sea at Plymouth Sound in south west Devon.
At the estuary, the Tamar merges with the rivers Tavy, Plym and Lynher and you can't think of the Tamar in isolation.
Together, the Tamar, Tavy and Lynher are a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Flanked by ancient woodland along lengthy stretches, the rivers also provide rare habitat.

A beautiful blend of green and gold, a real celebration of autumn. Perfectly exposed and with lovely natural tones.

Hello Leslie - This scene looks so peaceful and attractive, I would like to sit awhile under the branches of the riverside trees and just enjoy the solitude. Beautiful intimate landscape. Warm regards rosemary

At last we have this beautiful period of the year called autumn. It is at least beautiful for us photographers... A very nicely composed picture here, with the dark trees in elegant forms against the beautiful autumnal colours. Excellent!

A very nice autumn scene. You make excellent use of the not very stron lighting. The balance between the dark (shaded) area and brighter (sunlit) areas along the river is very good. Such areas could easily bet under-exposed and over-exposed. The backlight is also great. The black trunks and branches of the trees really stand out against the colourful foliage. TFS and have a fine week!

Leslie, thank you so very much for your kind words and keeping me and my family in your thoughts and prayers. As I try to get back into the mix of things here on TE, I read the critiques of my last two photos and find it very hard holding back tears. It's nice to have an extended family that hasn't even met me before, which makes you all even that more special to me.
What a serene location, it looks so quite and peaceful. You've captured all the wonderful colors in a way that speaks to the heart......thank you for that!! Masterfully presented Leslie!!
TFS.........Your Friend from California.......Buddy

Hi Les, what a beautiful fall composition this is!The light is nicely controlled, the fall colors shades and shadows are playing the greatest role in this extraordinary shot!The reflection on the water is amazing! Great shot!

This is a really good autumn shot!
I like the way you placed the tree and the curtain of leaves, with so many different tonalities. You also maneged the light very well. Good shot, with a perfect autumn atmosphere!
