Purple rain on Exmoor

August 20, 2017

There’s been a lot of rain this summer. (Who’d have thought that when scientists said we would have warmer, wetter summers that we actually would?). Anyhow apart from making the tourists pissed off and having to plan when to mow the lawn, it has meant that north Devon is looking green and lush at the […]

For the first time in ages I managed to sneak an afternoon on Exmoor. There was a nippy nor-west wind but it was beautifully clear beneath racing Cumulus clouds. I skirted the north edge of the moor from Brendon to Lorna Doone valley ending up at Robbers Bridge. Big skies and the emptiness of the […]

It’s fifty shades of brown on the moor at the moment and if you are lucky enough to get it ‘all lit up’ by some weak winter sunshine; the mood becomes magical. To cap off another great drive on the moor with the indomitable Neil Osmond of Experience Exmoor, we caught these two young ladies […]
