Photography contest 'captures special qualities' of national park'
Bookmark and Share
The things that make Dartmoor National Park a unique and special landscape were captured by the best shots in a photography competition focused on the national park, its judges have claimed.

People keen to put on their walking trousers and enjoy the upland area of Devon may be inspired by the pictures, which were judged by professional lensmen Richard Austin and Adrian Oakes.

Mr Austin said the pair spent "hours" studying the 400 entries for the competition, which was held to celebrate 60 years since the designation of Dartmoor as a national park.

Referring to the winner of the top prize - a snap of four Dartmoor ponies huddled together on a wet day, he added: "What sets the winning entries apart is how they have captured the sense of place and illustrated how the photographer has waited for just the right moment."

Dartmoor's ponies are one of its iconic features, as are the tors and bronze age cairns scattered around the landscape.

The national park has 1,208 scheduled ancient monuments.
