    From last week's family outing to Devon. My son and his girlfriend live nearby in Exeter. This was our first major trip with Inky the terrier, who behaved impeccably and absolutely loved walking over the moor!
    In no particular order:

    Makes me want to return. Not been since I had my heart attack there in 2006. After colleagues dialled 999 a fire crew turned up, shoved an aspirin under my tongue and waited for the ambulance. Had 3 stents put in at Torquay Hospital. I had better make sure there is a good signal on my phone if I ever go back!

    Nicely done! :thumbup: We lived on Dartmoor for a while (albeit some years ago, now), and as a result, I'm well aware that successfully capturing the essence of Dartmoor in photographs is not always as easy as it might at first appear - despite the obvious bleakness and beauty of the moor's physical geography. Excellent job here, and a slice of the credit goes to the RX100, as well...!

    Hi, I think they were all in intelligent auto (not plus) mode, creative style standard, RAW+Fine. I usually adjust the RAW file in post-processing if I'm not happy with the JPEG.

    I'm a sucker for photos of Inky and those beautiful ponies. I can't quite make out a date from that gravestone, but those look VERY old. Do you know how old that cemetery is?

    I didn't have a good look round but 1700s at least.

    I like the naturalness of these shots, they speak for themselves.
