This is such a refreshing scene. Looking at it makes me miss somebody I don't even know. An image I would print, frame and put it on my wall. This is really beautiful. There is just such a variety of colours to appreciate in this photo. The white clouds, the blue sky, the grey rocks, the green valley, the flowers in the distance and many more. This is a magic scene that has a calming effect on the eye. The landscape is really wonderful. Great sharpness and exposure. Lovely presentation. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Mr Haynes
This is a fantastic landscape..Youve captured light and shadows all over the scene which is very nicely broken up into the the fore, mid and back ground..No easy task.
The framing is spot on as are your use of filters.
Top Work and one that I would proudly display on my wall.

What a beautiful late summer day! I miss them, too! And i sure hope that the warmth returns soon (it's been cold and rainy here for almost a week) :(
I like the landscape - and i mean the actual landscape here: just nice hills with little patches of forest here and there, rocks scattered in bit an all the slopes and lovely wild flowers everywhere...just a splendid place to walk in on such a nice day.
The great sun and the fluffy clouds really gave you a terrific summer mood and also made sure that every aspect of the frame here would be "entertaining" :)
Charming colors everywhere and a spot-on use of all those filters!
Wonderful work, my friend!
Bravo and TFS

What a beautiful landscape and what a contrast between dark and lighter areas. Splendid. These stones on the right side are a nice contrast with the purple moor beside them. The undulating landscape happens very pleasant. The blue sky, clouds and the whole environment give me rests. That must be a perfect lazy day. Thanks for sharing. Greetings and TFS BOB

This would be a place where I would like to have a rest, even a lazy day! Where I would walk around with my camera round the neck or have a picnic with my lovely wife. There are many beautiful spots like this one on our planet, but not many so well put on stage as yours.

Interesante trabajo con el color Paul y una magnífica luz y composición. A la nitidez de los colores se unes esos potentes contrastes que dan un interés especial a esta toma. Un bello conjunto muy bien trabajado técnicamente.

Superb superb beautiful landscape, Paul, I love walking into it with my eyes! What a nice curve of a landscape. When I look at it, yes, we can tell it is an old place. The sky is fantastic and the hills roll one after the other one, it is so beautiful. Thank you!

Excellent composition - well thought out, with the main elements and light and dark areas well balanced. Having the small patch of purple just off centre makes the shot.
I know the term clitter - it actually refers to the noise that the rocks make when they rub together (also used for insect noise).

The cloudy sky and the varied light add attraction value to the image!
A well balanced composition with good foreground interest, a fine feeling of depth...
Lovely late summer colours!

Hi Paul, this is a wonderful scene of Dartmoor, such diversity and colour in the landscape with a wonderful pov, all topped off with the clear blue sky and fluffy clouds. The shot would make a lovely poster or calendar shot. Great light and good detail throughout. Wonderful composition.

another great shot, whenever i look at you postings i feel like leaving macros for sometime and go for landscape , i am planning to buy sigma 10-20 lens, what do you say about this lens,
this picture is so beautiful the colours are amazing, excellent pov, the white clouds in the blue sky look lovely with the shadows falling on earth,
tfs & regards
Have you really had your EOS400 and 10-20 since last summer?! Time does fly, seems like only a month or so ago you were posting your first shots with that combo!
Anyway, beautiful peaceful "nice" scene mate, I don't generally like that word "nice" too much - but it somehow really fits this shot - it's a real "ahhh" roll on summer type of shot!
The filters have made the most of that lovely sky - and your usual standards of composition etc apply!
Great work - TFS,

This is a nice wide angled shot with nice foreground elements and great depth. The clouds are nice and their cast shadows interesting.

Hello Paul !
What a splendid picture you have here ! You have such a wonderful point of view on the valley from here, and I also like this gorgeous light that is shining on the hills, and the beautiful clouded sky, and the beautiful colors, and the composition of this stunning picture... Very well done !

Many thanks, Ulla

A beautiful vista.This shot is very well balanced and composed.
I like the rock on the right,and the flowering (sedums perhaps?) in the foreground.
Lovely rich ,well saturated colours.
Excellent focus and sharpness.

Wonderful landscape shot which looks like a painting. Lovely colours and sharp details. Superb light and shadow play and you have captured a charming scene and the refreshing ambience pretty well. Excellent DOF and chosen POV. Very nicely composed. Kudos.
I have made this shot my favorite but I could do it with any your stunning pictures. All is amazing. Pictured place is wonderful but skill of execution (I think) is more significant factor. Fantastic colours, lights and shadows, excellent reflection of space of the image. Transparency of the image, razor sharpness of all object are terrific. Bravo.
