Some words written and a photo taken on a snowy walk on Saddle Tor, Dartmoor, Devon, New Year’s Day morning, 2021.



There’s an anticipation in the yellow-lilac light and shade of a snowy day. The ground is cold and hard, the sky takes a pregnant pause.

On the Saddle the ponies continue to chew the frost-free strands within their reach, the first flakes nestle on their flanks like powdered sugar.

Softly, a new landscape descends. On moor, on beast and on warm, pink cheeks.
