Some areas of Pew Tor on Dartmoor are covered in granite boulders interspersed with spindly trees clinging on for dear life.
Late on a winter afternoon the light can be at it`s most alluring.

The winter light is magical. I love the wind-swept tree and the rock anchoring the composition to the corner. The detail on the warmly lit rocky FG and grass is superb with the BG giving a real feel for the magnificent landscape of the area.
Kind Regards, Ann

Oh Les - That lovely twisted tree sat amongst the rocks makes a smashing FG and introduction to the wider landscape. This one is very much to my taste; good light and a beautiful, well managed landscape. Top class. Warm regards Rosemary

A wonderful panoramic view about these area.
All the big rock stones in foreground between a pleasant vegetation, cares for autumn colours.
Excellent depth and perspective picture.
Colour and sharpness be superb.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Another beautifully lit landscape composition. Very well composed and with superb depth. The light falling across the foreground is quite delicious. Like the use of the rocks as a frame and to mask the setting sun. The nearby spindly tree is a definite plus. Excellent colours and top class clarity.

This one is really up my street!
A fabulous landscape photograph which owes much of its beauty to the glorious low angle warm light - as well as to the skills of the photographer, of course! Your composition not only obeys all the "rules" of composition but is most pleasing too with the lone tree making a fine focal point and holding the whole image together perfectly. Very clever of you also to "hide" the bright setting sun behind those rocks on the right and yet not to have had their shaded side in total darkness.
Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure, excellent processing work and exquisite details and sharpness even at it full size of 1400 pixels wide.
This one just has to go into my "favourites!

The light is gorgeous!
We get a chance to contrast it against the shaded areas.
The tree, growing within the confines of the rocks, is a very special feature and its bowing branches lead succinctly towards the horizon.
Have a great w/e,

this is just beautiful. That special light that only seems to pervade the landscape at this time of year, full of golden tones and atmospherically gentle. A perfectly composed and executed image that is quality and visually stunning. Love it!
Have a great weekend - B.

your landscapes of Devon are fantastic, especially in this amazing light. The sky and green colors are a feast for the eyes. The lonely tree and the rocks are placed perfectly to create a wonderful composition. My compliments!

Hello Leslie ,
A syou say , the light and the colors at their best to czptutr this beautiful english landscape . I like the compositiion with the big rock and the naked tree on the right . It would have been yet better with a little more clouds , but the sky was like that this day .

Dartmoor seems to me to be a rather windy place, That fine lonely tree looks like those found close to beaches, forever pained by the wind from the sea. The light and colours are sublime (not really photoshopped, are they?) and those boulders are fascinating.

Splendid light and wise inclusion of the naked tree at right in this lovely scenery
Have a nice WE, best regards

A terrific landscape image. With the sun just tucked behind the rock on the right you have been able to show us the incredible winter light on Dartmoor. That twisted tree really tops off your image.

Very beautiful tones on this lovely landschape! I like the composition with the rock at the right giving a bigger depth to the image.

beautiful wide view from a great POV. You captured it in a fantastic light well hiding the bright sun behind the rocks. The tree adds a very nice dramatic touch to the composition.

Another very good one! The landscape and the golden light are perfect! Wonderful view from this place. I like the composition with the tree and boulders on the right. I wonder how peaceful it must be at this time of the day!
