Walk to Sharp Tor

This is my first blog post recording places I visit; and for these photographs to act as a catalyst for paintings. I feel very lucky that I live in Liskeard, Cornwall, surrounded by such stunning landscape.

 View toward Sharp Tor

 I recommend this wonderful walk

Wonderful expanse of open moorland continues beyond Sharp Tor

Caradon Hill to the left on the horizon and Stowes Hill lit up in sunlight

This was a painting I made following an earlier visit, but the view is from higher up Stowes Hill toward Sharp Tor in 2010.
