Ohhhhh! what a magnificent photo John.....the horses seem quite calm grazing....they give scale to that massive rock just sitting in the middle of the pasture.......and then there is the sky that seems almost to be blowing up and out from the valley behind it....fine work ....petersmile

Absolutely gorgeous photo. Great big sky with so many points of interest, the rock, the horses, the scenery in general.

Haytor ... I knew it was within 5 nano-seconds.

I think a birds-eye view is what you should have done from standing on the top
John Prior: Thanks Richard

horses add so much to an image. quite a serene pasture they have. i like your low vantage point.
