Belstone Common, Dartmoor


Having camped at Belstone Tor overnight I awoke to find mist covering most of the land surrounding Dartmoor. The sheep were starting to graze and I could hear a Cuckoo calling over to my left. As the sun came up it hit a patch of cloud which turned the light pinky-orange, giving a glow to the damp grass in the distance. Moments like these are to be savoured.
