Combestone Tor, Dartmoor - Morning Light and the Treasures of the O Brook

Snuck in a walk all around Combestone Tor this morning, after nearly veering off the road whilst looking at the amazing slithers of fog that were floating around the moor in the morning light.  (I swear my vehicular comeuppance will be from gazing at nature's wonders or when a spider decides to abseil from the car ceiling into my face.)

Combestone has to be the most accessible tor on Dartmoor, but it's a good one; great rock basins and loads archaeological history all around it.

A colour photograph of the tor (unusually for me - it really was like that.  Beautiful.)

A more conventional photograph, at least for me...

Walked down the O Brook to the amazing blowing houses at Week Ford.  I've never seen so many fantastic mortar stones (at least 16 basins).
