A Close Encounter

“A very close encounter with this healthy fox which is a resident where I go and take stag photos. I was held up a few metres from a pheasant so not to disturb it (they make a racket) and this fox came out of nowhere to catch it. It missed it by 1 metre but saw me and just stared at me. It walked off and didn’t much care I was stood there.”

County Gate

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.
