The best camera

Coming down from the Moor

My point-and-shoot camera turned out to be the best camera in the world yesterday.

Seeing purple

The Moor in heather

The Moor is at peak-purple at this time of year, with the heather in full bloom.

The nearly dead tree

Each spring, I visit a particular corner of the Moor to check if an old friend has managed to survive another winter.

Exploring my damp patch

Cotton grass

For many years, I've sought in vain for a particular wild flower on my local patch—a plant that inspired Charles Darwin to write an entire book on insectivorous plants.
