The open moorland above Sheepstor can be both attractive and pretty inhospitable at any time of year.
Parts of Dartmoor still have no mobile phone signal, be properly prepared when roaming is the key to survival,wear appropriate clothing and tell someone where you intend to go.
I have uploaded a BW version as a workshop.

This is charming and very beautiful spring landscape post. Truly peaceful view with lots of interesting elements. Well seen and composed.

This is a very pleasing landscape of a place that immediately brings to my mind the great writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his supersleuth Sherlock Holmes. Any chances of the great hound of the Baskervilles :) lurking around somewhere?
The photograph is excellent with superb colour and details.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day.

Un bien beau paysage. J'aime beaucoup l'arbre solitaire au loin qui sert de point focal dans tout ce foisonnement de verdure printanière. La lumière est magique.

this is lovely place! Peaceful and serene, perfect for long walks. The vast space in here makes the composition light but there are also loads of details to diversify it, like the big stone in the foreground, some short walls cutting across the field or single tree on the horizon. Very pretty colors add to the very positive impression this image makes.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day

Nice landscape, I like the composition with the rock in the Fg and the very well managed light capture, great result with shades and rays of sun.

I love such desolate landscapes ! You had a very beautiful light that adds golden tones to the scenery. Excellent sharpness.

This is a fascinating scenery and it's quite amazing to find this kind of wilderness in soutern England. Walking through this area in this kind of light and surrounded by these colours must have been a great experience. People below 35 should probably stay out of here, since they can't use their mobile phones while walking :-).

Beautiful view of the rolling green fields under bright sun shine. I like the inclusion of the rock to create FG interest. The lone tree in the distance is a fine focal point. Nice landscape shot with superb colours and excellent clarity. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Les - Looking at the large size, I feel as if I can step into this landscape and walk across the springy ground. You shots please me both for nostalgic reasons but also for the beauty of your well chosen subjects and your excellent management. This ticks all the boxes for me. Superb! As much as I like the mono shot, this one has a fabulous spring look with fresh green grass and a delicate,soft blue sky.
A pleasure to see.
