You are certainly having fun with your Taks, Paul.
Indeed I am, Albert. But lately it seems I'm the only one. (where is everybody?)

It's a time of the year here when the best light comes at times of the day when it's not very convenient to get out in it. And you wouldn't want me to inconvenience myself, now would you?

But November to January are usually the best months for the light here, so I always look forward to yomping around on Dartmoor in the mud and ice under those glowering winter skies.

I guess it'll be worth the wait.

I see they have been to the wool dresser for a dye job. I love the atmosphere of the shot.

Thanks, Paul and Albert. Gotta love those autumn mornings just as the sun is starting to burn away the early mist.

And welcome to the club, Gina.
