An Exmoor Landscape

A view over the moors past County Gate, so on Exmoor but in Somerset. The high moors always present in a wonderful variety of moods, this time quite peaceful as you look east across Exmoor.

Why Must You Go?

image of older couple

Why are you leaving? Why must you go?
How can this happen when I love you so?

What sense is the present when you’ve lost our past?
As I fade from your memory. Is this day be our last?

How can this happen while you are still here?
How can I watch while you disappear?

I hold you here with me, but you leave me behind.
I watch without hope as time carves your mind.

I see you departing, more so each day.
My life will be empty when you’ve gone away.

It’s Not Your Fault

image of depressed man

It’s not your fault I did not flower.

You nourished me, encouraged me,
tended me with love and care.

But when my roots find stony ground,
they turned and tangled, hid from sight.

With strength that weakened year by year,
buds withered, perished as they formed.

All you did could never heal,
the problems hidden deep beneath.

It’s not your fault I did not flower.
You tried. I failed.

Near Horizons, Saunton Sands, Devon

saunton sands, near horizons

Saunton Sands beach leads all the way to Crow Point and the estuaries of the Taw and Torridge rivers. For that reason there is often a mist or sea fret laying along the estuary and obscuring the view of Westward Ho! Every time you visit the beach it looks slightly different.

Chapman Burrows Storm, Exmoor

storm over exmoor

This is a painting of Chapman Burrows, Exmoor, Devon on a late afternoon with storm clouds gathering. The sun continued to light the distant horizon, but rain was threatening with every passing minute. This place has been one of my favourite haunts for many years, only a short distance away yet no houses to see for miles.

Dartmoor Granite

Anyone who has walked on Dartmoor or even driven over it, will recognise the iconic landscape depicted in this painting. Outcrops of granite rock litter the wild and beautiful high moorland which is famous for its tors. Painted with a large brush to emulate the windswept terrain. This scene is on the walk from Two Bridges to Wistman’s Wood.

Chapman Burrows Sunset

exmoor sunset with sheep

A late summer evening as the sun set over Exmoor. The sunset changed every few minutes as though a psychedelic light show was taking place just for me. The sheep were unmoved by the beauty, maybe they had seen it too many times before.
