Wild is the Wind through Dartmoor Trees

Autum in the Dartmoor Landscape
Wild is the Wind Through Dartmoor Trees

I love Dartmoor.  This landscape is fully of mystery, colour, shapes and textures.  These trees bend and sway as wind moves and spirals around their branches.  They are tall trees and bend as the wind howls through the leaves.   Autumn creates this soft illuminated light which saturates the oranges in the fall leaves.  Setting a cloudy white balance for the jpg. preview pumps up the warmth of the colours and motivates the colour painter within me to look for more oranges, reds and yellows to contrast against the sky.  These Dartmoor Trees are tall and extremely elegant.  Their beauty is all mine to see and capture.  This time of year is just the best.  Where else could I be?
