Idyll


Photo Information
“An optimist is a person who sees only the lights in the picture, whereas a pessimist sees only the shadows. An idealist, however, is one who sees the light and the shadows, but in addition sees something else: the possibility of changing the picture, of making the lights prevail over the shadows. “
(Felix Adler)

Transient light falls on Haytor Rocks and in parts of the wooded Sig valley below. The cows and sheep are near Owlacombe. Halshanger Woods lie in the foreground, with Bagtor Woods on the hillside beyond.

I always like when the sun and clouds paint the landscape with shadow and light like this.

Want a different scene? Just wait a few minutes.

Viewed large, there is amazing depth here.
