Kes Tor and the River Teign
I spent several days in Dartmoor National Park in the West Lands of England last week. A constant contrast between narrow tunnel like lanes bounded by tall banks and hedges and the moody skies and rolling heather hills of the open moors.
It's an amazing cultural landscape where even the wild moors support sheep and ponies. This sketch was just beyond an ancient stone slab "clapper" bridge where we had a quick dip in a small pool. Kes Tor - a rock protrusion on a hilltop, was visible through the gap in the pine windbreak.
