Photographer's Note

A beautiful day on the moor capturing shots of the wild ponnies and the superb rugged landscape, especially the amazing rock formations as seen in the distance.

Dartmoor is an area of moorland in the centre of the English county of Devon. Protected as a National Park.

The moorland is capped with many exposed granite hilltops (known as tors), providing habitats for Dartmoor wildlife. The highest point is High Willhays, 621m above sea level. The entire area is rich in antiquities.

Dartmoor is managed by the National Park Authority whose 26 members are drawn from Devon County Council, local District Councils and Government.

Parts of Dartmoor have been used as a military firing range for over 200 years. The public enjoy extensive access rights to the rest of Dartmoor, and it is a popular tourist destination. The Park was featured on the TV programme Seven Natural Wonders as the top natural wonder in South West England.
