The Source and End

"First follow Nature, and your judgment frame
By her just standard, which is still the same:
Unerring nature, still divinely bright,
One clear, unchanged, and universal light,
Life, force, and beauty must to all impart,
At once the source, and end, and test of art."

Alexander Pope

Puddles of early morning sunlight on the undulating slopes of the vales Yarnacombe, Wytchcombe, Spriddlescombe and Bearcombe. These lie in the South Hams area of Devon.

Yarnacombe and Brownston woods are in the immediate hanging valley.

Windy Ridge at Ugborough sits in the middle distance and the ridges of shoulders of Harford Moor, Stall Moor & Penn Moor on the southern fringes of the Dartmoor plateau sit in the far distance
