We had streams on the last post, now we move into the woods. Although spring hadn’t yet arrived at Dartmoor on this time of the year, we luckily found some dense woods with magical green spots. One of those even had a beautiful warm red carpet bringing visions of autumn.
We first headed for Wistman’s Wood located in the valley of West Dart River, near Two Bridges. This place is full of stunted pedunculate oak trees covered with moss and lychen. Chaffinch also make their presence heard as they keep constantly singing. Although beautiful to see, I found it extremely difficult to photograph since the landscape is visually fuss.
The other woods we visited hasn’t a name as I know, at least on our detailed map =) We found it while wandering around Dartmoor on a foggy morning. The place looked interesting from the road, so we parked the car and took a chance. It kind of reminded me of ancient witch days, cold, very limited visibility, silence…
I will end this last England blog post with a tor image. Three attempts to photograph Great Staple Tor at sunset, rain, wind, cold, I almost didn’t feel my fingertips, but this was the only time the sun made its presence felt.
That’s all from England! You can check all the images posted and a few more on my archive.
