Ringhill Cross

Tuesday 7th June - Day 171

I note the support from the off-road fraternity/sorority yesterday! I had gone out prepared, so there was only a little bit of mud on me.... the car, well I can wash it can't I ;)

Today is a new day, as you can see, blue sky has returned. This is a cross by the side of a tiny country road, single car width between Devon Banks... lovely safe driving lol... Stone crosses around Dartmoor have been erected for a variety of purposes - village or preaching crosses, route markers, shrines, or boundary marks... This one is near, but on, a junction.

View across a cultivated valley nearby

wonderful composition - the rough stone against the gorgeous blue sky, with the delicate flowers, reaching up.... awesome!

Very nice images, Lee ... I like the low perspective you use for the cross ... like its stretching up to the heavens!
Looks like a gorgeous day!
