Gold Rush

“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.”
(Jim Bishop)

The tumbling waters of the Aune as they make their way over and through the granite bedrocks of Dartmoor National Park, in early Autumn.

The name Aune is derived from Old Norse word au{dh}n - meaning ‘wasteland’, or a ‘desolate place’ - which fits the description of the source of this river - in a bleak and boggy mire to the west of Ryder’s Hill, high on the southern side of the moors, rather well.
