Winter Mist at Bellever Forest, Dartmoor

What do you do when you finish work early on a cold January day? Well, those miserable days in the city can turn out to be pretty magical out on the moors. Bellever forest is one of my favourite places on Dartmoor, but I’ve only been there in warm summer weather. In the winter, it’s just as beautiful. The fog was amazing! It enveloped everything and made the landscape feel like a film set. It was magical, eerie and completely otherworldly. Even the Dartmoor ponies came to say hello. It makes me think about how much we miss waiting for the summer sun, when a warm coat and some boots can open up a whole new set of adventures you didn’t even know were there x
