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!

i like them all but will also pick out #2 as a favorite.

i think that right of way(road or pipeline?) gives a better sense of how large the place is and gives me a better sense of the size of it.

very nice.
