Today for the first time since we returned from our hols in Australia we visited an area of Dartmoor above Peter Tavy.
This is how we found it,foggy and wet.Spring is on hold for the time being it seems.

I can see that, and in spring you not want to come. Very well done picture and adds nostalgic haze mood.
Have a good night

Un vero peccato che questa foto sia stata poco apprezzata perchè a mio parere merita di essere presa in considerazione per la sua poetica bellezza nel contrasto tra il bruno della terra e la nebbia che invade l'atmosfera lasciando netta solo la sagoma di un albero che diviene l'oggetto principale della composizione.
Una foto a mio parere molto curata per la quale ti faccio i miei complimenti
Ciao e buona domenica

Simple but very beautiful this foggy scenery.
TFS and have a nice weekend

Hello Leslie - a dreary, winter-like scene at the start of spring... nicely minimal, with the one sad little tree struggling against the barren surroundings. The light is really well managed in a thick fog - you've brought out really nice light on the ground here. Thanks!

Yes, spring is on hold in Belgium too. This morning once again, we found that it had snowed last night.
I hope that the fog on this picture soon made way for the sun because personally I consider this weather as very sad.
The small tree on the foreground adds a depth feeling to the photograph.
Best regards, Paul

Oh dear this weather is such a contrast! I'm so sorry you're having a very ordinary spring so far, but on the bright side, this is a very dramatic and artistic photo. You've managed to make someone quite extraordinary out of this dreary weather.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful Sunday

The misty atmosphere accentuated the eeriness of the Dartmoor landscape. A scene of special beauty.

So moody scene you have captured here! Like it a lot! Creative and unique shot executed very well with great exposure and sharpness. Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice and sunny day!:-)

definitely! It is freezing here on the Sussex coast today and to be honest I am getting a bit naffed off with it! Your shot epitomises what this spring is like so perfectly and has a strange eerie and arty feel about it. Very atmospheric.
Enjoy your Sunday - Brian.

Hello Leslie - The dull, miserable weather has just about leached all the colour from the landscape and your capture is moody, minimal and artistic. Well managed, I think it must be difficult to manage the light when the light is bouncing off the fog like this. Here's hoping for a positive change in the weather! Rosemary

A great moody landscape image.
I just love these wintery-like images but I don't want to be there in winter, or spring it seems, to take them. I intend to see Dartmoor in summer though.

I like this atmosphere very much! A mystery picture. We have to guess what is in the background. Not a living soul in sight except this tree. I do like the atmospheric shot.
Have a nice evening,

Digging into your gallery, i found this one.
Immediately brings to my mind a scene from an arthouse movie. Awesome artistry...
