In summer after a dry spell the River Tavy meanders through a boulder strewn bed high on Dartmoor.Far from the madding crowd,a truly delightful spot.

A beautifully lit landscape composition with superb colours and clarity. I like the low viewpoint and the excellent detail to be observed. The watercourse makes a good lead-line directing the viewer toward the focal point offered by the trees.

The wide angle lens makes the perspective lines very good and adds depth to the composition. Good exposure, good sharpness.
Have a nice week,

a beautiful shot full of wonderful clarity and texturing that just oozes tranquillity and a sense of peaceful escapism. Flawless light management and absorbing shades and colours. Irresistible!
Have a good week - Brian.

Le point de vue sur le petit cours d'eau nous donne très envie d'enlever nos chaussures et de nous mettre les pieds dans l'eau.Très bas, il donne de la profondeur à l'image qui jouit de très belles couleurs.

Hello Les - The water runs as clear as crystal through this rocky Dartmoor landscape and the location looks isolated and peaceful. Beautiful colours, textures and detail. Oh what a pleasure it would be to sit here a while and drink in the beauty. A fine shot. Warm regards Rosemary
PS Thanks for the 'heads up' about the right click. Good to know.

beautiful spot indeed. I like the clarity of the water. Nice natural colors from the brownish tones in the water through green vegetation to light blue sky. Very well thought through composition with rocks and some plants making a nice foreground.

A delightful spot indeed that, as you suggest, looks away from the crowds. The river has carved a small valley that I imagine give some shelter to the flora and fauna of the high moors of Dartmoor. The colours of the river are lovely and the water looks crystal clear.
English countryside at its best - TFS.
KInd Regards, Ann
