I thought I'd put up some images of our part of Dartmoor taken during the recent cold weather.
It is not often that the reservoir at Fernworthy freezes over. It has only happened twice in the 15 years we have been here.

I went to see a screening of this new Chris Chapman film about Dartmoor last night and it just reminded me how lucky I am to live in this part of the world.
Two years in the making the film by Dartmoor photographer Chris Chapman and film maker Kate King charts the history of Dartmoor and its people.
It features some stunning shots of the landscape and lots of local people, many of whom we know well.
If you live on Dartmoor and haven't seen it, the 'roadshow' has now ended but it will also be shown at Dartmoor National Park Authority's High Moorland Visitor Centre in Princetown from 24 July as part of an exhibition about the making of the film.
...and you can buy a copy of the film from Chris Chapman's website.
