Foggy Dartmoor.


By cmsue


Well we decided to go out again today,NOT a good day but here goes, Creepy looking or what

Couldn’t see much, Imagine attempting escape from Dartmoor Prison in this weather?

How about living here ,no one else for miles around.

I love this Lichen it is very pretty at this time of the year

Widdecome in the Moor Church, the mist was just lifting

We love this little stream, When the real bad weather comes the birds come here for a drink

This farm is on the top of the moor

So on to the way home.

And look what we saw.We couldn’t believe it, we were just sitting having a cuppa and these lovely Red Wings were playing and eating the berrys of the Holly bush right above us..

Look closely a real mouth full !!!

You were brave going out on a day like that when most of us would have been hugging the fire! And what a great reward you had at the end! We had redwings for a few days last winter but haven't seen any this year so far.

Now that does look very eerie in the fog ... isn't that Lichen pretty? ... Lovely to see the Redwings ... the closest I've got to seeing them is in a book!

Hi Steragram We just love going up on the moor, to feed the birds espcially this cold weather :)

Hi Shirley It is a bit eerie but beutiful, The redwings were funny , they were playing in the bush right by the side of us :)

How on earth did that Redwing not choke! Your photos of Widdecome in the Moor Church are gorgeous! Just like a painting!

If you WERE in Dartmoor and fancied legging it, there are two thoughts - 1) the mist would make very good cover 2) It's too blessed COLD out there - please can I come back in?
Those pictures are so pretty- very atmospheric. Love the lichen, particularly, and the church. Isn't Britain a beautiful country?
