A cloud inversion over Selworthy, Porlock Vale & far, far away…

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 🌫
Out & about & aloft exploring a fog bound Exmoor National Park.

A new Exmoor Photo Competition starts now!

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!

For Terms and Conditions, please see here.

Photo of the Week

“The winter light hits the frosted valley whilst the small river water flows by at Simonsbath, Exmoor.

Simonsbath is a small village high on Exmoor in the English county of Somerset. It is the principal settlement in the Exmoor civil parish, The River Exe rises from a valley to the north, and the River Barle runs through the village and is crossed by a triple-arched medieval bridge that was extensively repaired after floods in 1952. The settlement lies on the route of the Two Moors Way and close to the Macmillan Way West.

Thanks for looking, Rich.”

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.”
