The winter sun across Dartmoor.
Cool click! Margie
Thank you Margie!
Fantastic image. I like the sinister atmosphere and also the composition is brilliant – especially with the shadow.
Thank you Rabirius, Dartmoor shadows are all or nothing!
Very good picture!
Thank you so much mm!
Toto, we are not in Kansas anymore!!! I don’t think you got this excellent shot in the big city!!!! :). Happy new year Patti!!
You went back home for the holidays? Spooky picture!!! You rock.
It’s a wonderfully “spooky” place Tom and yes, “back home” for the holidays. Thank you Tom and all best to you bunkering down in the big blizzard!
Where the wind takes us . . . . no Toto, we are not in Kansas anymore but back to the big city soon! Happy New Year best wishes to you Derrick!
Just as I expected…fantastic!
You are most kind, thank you Angeline!
That is a fantastic photo, Patti. And I get the feeling the long walk was a good one.
Thank you so much Bente and yes it was a very good walk with so much to explore up there.
Great dark tones in this composition, and the expansiveness of the land. No buildings, cars, or other obstacles to contend with, and yet a profound sense of scale.
That’s me there, just wandering.
Trying to acquire and enjoy as much freedom as possible.
There is a profound sense of freedom up there Allan and, perversely enough, the worse the weather the more glorious that sense of freedom.
That’s terrific, Patti! Interesting how that glimmer of sunshine sparkling off the road right through the picture makes it optimistic rather than bleak. 🙂
Thank you Meredith! That sunshine was such a treat, follow the golden path!
Glorious Black and White / Lighted Path / Home Off in the Distance
Perfect Holiday Theme Photo!
Thank you dear Annie!
exceptional photograph…I love it!
Thrilled to hear, thank you so much for your comment! It is so spectacular up there that it is easy enough, for me, to feel overwhelmed and not quite sure where to point the camera. Am sure you are enjoying your walks up where you are, hope so!
Beautiful image, Patti. It’s almost as if the figure is gouging the path out of the land.
A wonderful thought, thank you so much Richard!
GREAT Photograph!….. Patti
Thank you very much indeed Burgess!!
Reblogged this on Aud D'Angelo and commented:

Dartmoor is a magical place! Thank you so much for your kind comment and re-blog!
Cant wait to walk it with you! (anyone we know in the picture?)
Not long to go now Zita! The person in the picture is a very dear friend and not the Dartmoor Monster!!!
And the Dartmoor Monster walks again !!!
Now now, you know that’s not true!!!
Uuhh, semms to bei vey wet in the UK. But even better than the tons of snow, isn’t it?
I wish you a nice weekend, Patti 🙂
So wet Ralf, I think I prefer the snow . . . . and hope your week-end was good fun, or at least dry and warm!
Dartmoor, cold wet and always windy. At least every time I visited it was. I like the dark somber look of this one, Patti
Thank you Mike! We have enjoyed dry, warm summer days up there but they seem so long ago now!
Sinister. Shadows and sounds of the night. The cold creeps across my skin. Walk quickly. Get out of there. All in one photograph. Virginia
Thank you Belocchio for your wonderful thoughts, although it is really very friendly up there! 🙂
Lovely shot against the light.
Thank you doublewhirler, the light did blaze the trail!
so nice 🙂
Wishing you a fabulous 2014 🙂
And so many Happy New Year wishes to you Joshi! Thank you!
nicely done image which reminds me of Eugene Smith’s work.
happy new year Patti.
John, thank you so much for the compliment!! Wishing you a wonderful year and I always look forward to seeing more of your great work.
Brilliant use of this light & contrast – well seen Patti
Thank you Pat, it was one of those rare days when we had the light on our side! No rain!
Yes, fabulous capture of light, texture and atmosphere Patti!
The moor has it all, thank you Madhu!
Love it, the fading light..I can hear the crunch and slide underfoot..
Thank you Cath, those footsteps write stories all their own don’t they . . .
Silvery light, lovely.
Thank you so much Elena!
long and dark is the road…excellent choice of composition…
Thank you Olivier!
Wow 🙂 Patti you are great at capturing scenes from street life, but your latest photos are so gorgeous. I have a perverse wish.. would it possible for you to stay in the moors and provide us daily with photos like this? 😀
That’s Ilford’s football pitch – I’d know it anywhere 😉 Hope you had a great New Year Patti despite the horrible weather. Looks like you were able to get your boots muddy during a break in the rain 🙂
Wonderful shot Patti.
Thank you kind Lignum!
My grateful thanks to you Sir Pinky!
Love the light and perspective with the diminishing shadow just barely attached …
Thank you so much poppytump – one of those lightening moments you think please, please let me get this shot . . . !
