This image shows the Dart River as it flows along the edge of Dartmoor National Park in Southwest England. Walking through this forest feels almost magical in the atmosphere that is present, with the shape of trees and other vegetation inviting one to contemplate the little people legends (pixies and fairies) spawned by such landscape in this part of the world. The river flows off of the Moor–one of the great granite outcroppings that dominate the nearby landscape and are so extensive as to alter the magnetic forces in the region affecting compass readings, among other things. The Dart River enlarges to form a large estuary further downstream, and is one of the access channels used by the ancient Romans in their conquest of Southern England. Brutus led his forces as far upstream as the river is navigable to the present town of Totnes, where his initial encampment is still memorialized by the Brutus Bridge. Click on image to enlarge.
