    Very nice. I love the layers of color in the folds of the land.

    Beautiful shots. I went to School on Exmoor (West Buckland School), but it wasn't quite so wild there. We did have a series of runs – one of them, 'The Exmoor' involved at 13-mile walk to the start near the Poltimore Arms on top of Exmoor and a 12-mile run back to the school. It happened in March and you weren't allowed to wear a track suit, so you had to sprint the first mile just to keep warm before you hit a more sheltered part of the route. Apparently it's the longest compulsory run in Great Britain. It was regarded as "good character-building" stuff. It built my character to find the best ways to avoid doing it!

    I live nearer Dartmoor now and I do still see Red Deer, but more often it's Roe Deer. I had to rescue one last month that got caught up in one of our fences.
