    yep this is what 'the outdoors' looks like near where i live, some of you have mountains, deserts, plains.... we have dartmoor, amoungst the largest open wilderness in england... remember the phrase 'stay off the moors' in american werewolf in london.... yea, that kind of moors... just thought i'd show you the colours and textures it has this time of year, come summer this will all be plastered in green bracken.

    Better quit with the moors references, or Aprilraven's gonna be daydreaming of you (Heathcliffe to her Cathy) in a long coat, in front of the castle, with the wind howling etc etc.

    Very nice shots. What lovely (albeit stark) scenery. I love seeing pics from TPF'rs areas of the world. [Did you borrow Woodsac's cloud machine that he's been closely guarding?]

    Wow, cool, that is where you live?
    When can I come visit?
    But I don't want to go to that prison!
    Is it still there?
    Still "active"? That famous Dartmoor Prison?
    These three are all very impressive and I think (but can't really decide) I like the second best. But I also like the third ... and the first :scratch: ... tough decision!

    Great stuff, thanks for posting! I expected to see Baskerville Manor with Holmes and Watson pursuing a large hound across the moor!
