The 2018 Photo Competition ran on our FB group back in May/June for four weeks. We had meant to turn the top 13 images into a calendar again, but simply ran out of hours in the day to get this organised. However, we now have a new project called “A Year on Exmoor”. More details will be revealed soon, just as the winners of the competition. The standard of entries have yet again been amazing and, in our eyes, every single one deserves to be a winner!
A golden landscape from a autumn in full colour whilst deep in the valley walls two homes slowly loose the afternoon light at County Gate, Exmoor.
County Gate, as the name suggests is where Devon and West Somerset meet. Its location offers great views over the East Lyn valley and Doone Country. There are several energetic walks from here into Doone Country or down to the coast.
This just has to be my favourite place in the world – peaceful, beautiful with abundant wildlife to enjoy. Early morning walk across the moors, skylarks singing and the Exmoor ponies were just around the corner. Can’t wait to be back in October. This was in April.
Who is up for a #SeptemberChallenge?Post your photos of Exmoor’s beautiful sky – clouds, sunrise, sunset, rain or shine.
Ready, steady, go!
“Popped out last night up onto Exmoor. First time in ages.I love the way the heather is mirrored in the clouds.”
