The Eternal Hum

The Eternal Hum

Photo Information
"The greatness of nature can overwhelm the insignificant chatter by which we measure most of our days. If you have the wisdom and the courage to go to nature alone, the larger rhythms, the eternal hum, will make itself known all the sooner. When you have found it, it will always be there for you..."

(Kent Nerburn)

It's a magical place - lovely tumble of water with ferns and moss.

Thanks very much to Sally and Dodge It is an amazing woodland to spend time in, its atmosphere is powerful due to its Middle earth ambience, being alone in vast wood and from talking to local farmers about the wild cats seen in this part of Dartmoor on several occassions (according to an article on mountain lions, hitting them with a walking pole,making loud noises and not running should do the trick to get rid of them...)
