On a chilly winter’s morning deep in the valley a frosted village sits whilst the sun rays slowly rise at Withypool, Exmoor.
Withypool is a small village in Somerset, England, near the centre of Exmoor National Park and close to the border with Devon. The word Withy means “willow”. Withypool is in the Barle Valley on the River Barle. The village lies on the route of the Two Moors Way and the Celtic Way Exmoor Option.
To the southwest of the village lie Withypool Common and Withypool Hill.
Thanks for looking, Rich.
Over the past few days, lots more photos were submitted to the January part of our 2020 Exmoor4all Photo Competition. They all have one thing is common: the photos show the beauty of Exmoor and the diversity of the UK’s smallest national park. And that Exmoor is beautiful at any time of the year, and whatever the weather!
At the beginning of February, all January entries will be collated in one album on our Facebook page and also here on the website. We will then invite the public to choose their top 10 photos – photos which have captured best the essence of Exmoor. These 10 images will go through to the semi-final: In July, the 60 semi-finalists will be presented to a panel of judges who will pick the 13 images to go onto the 2021 Exmoor4all Calendar.
Some mornings are just so much better than others and that counts for weather as well as my ongoing and boring health issues (syringomyelia) with my damaged spinal cord.
Mornings can be really hard and painful for me to get up, get moving and get out but this is one I didn’t want to miss when I saw the forecast for morning fog across Exmoor 🌫

It’s been a while since our last Exmoor Photo Competition, and what better way to start the new decade than with lots of amazing photos taken by our talented photographers on beautiful Exmoor.
Everyone is eligible to enter up to three images per month. The competition will run until 30 June 2020 – each month, the public will choose the top ten images to go through to the semi-finals by ‘liking’ them in a special album on Facebook or here on the website. The public and a jury will pick the final 13 images in August 2020 – these photos will feature on our 2021 Exmoor4all Calendar.
You can enter the competition here (safest method to make sure we are not missing an entry) or by posting your photos on Twitter or Facebook, using the hashtag #Exmoor4allPhotoComp. The hashtag is important as it will help us to find your entries!
