Inspired by Simon's sets of photographs from Snowdonia, I thought I'd offer a couple from my local stomping ground, Dartmoor.

Love the second one. Did you do any artificial blurring on the middle section or was there a bit of a breeze blowing across the ridge? Either or, the effect really sets the shot.

A bit of a breeze is close. Howling gale would be closer. 'Twas a cold, windy day, with lots of weather

I can feel the cold and wind...the light in the last image particularly good.

The third has a bit of an unpleasant atmosphere (by design I think) but the others are quite pleasant and inviting (despite the wind and cold)
Colours and light are very nice, especially 1 and 4.

Fantastic light in the second one, Bill.

Bill,

A fine set!

One thing bothered me, though, never having been to Dartmoor (this is my problem, not yours). All I have read about Dartmoor (Conan Doyle, etc.) has led me always to imagine it in Black and White! So seeing colors there really startled me. So I'd love to see these converted to B&W.

Cheers,

Eric

Eric - some B&W shots from the same day's wander over the Moor. A conversion of one of the ones already posted, and a few more besides.

I like B&W4 with the jaggedy cloud reflected in the clitter below, and Beliver in the evening is nice viewed large.

All good but the B&W are stronger. Makes one think...

I love the BW ones. To me they express beautifully the terrors I associate (from literature) with wandering on Dartmoor.

Thanks for posting those, Bill!

I'll second, third and fourth that on the cloud explosion, not that any of them are the least bit shabby.
