Dunkery Beacon - The rescue

On Sunday I decided to head up on to Exmoor, to the highest point, Dunkery Beacon, to have a walk and take some photos. The weather was far from settled, but I thought it might make for some moody skies. I stopped in the village of Dunster on the way (photos tomorrow) and then headed up onto the moor. 

I arrived at the little grassed car park and immediately fell in love with my surroundings. Little did I know what this place had in store for me. Near the car park there was a little stream which ran under the roadway and then tumbled down through a series of leaps and jumps into a deep gorge. Straight away I was down in there snapping away.

A hollow near the stream bed, foxgloves included at no extra charge.
