Which place would you suggest for landscape photography (considering inlands) - Dartmoor or Exmoor. I got two days to spend but cannot decide between Dartmoor or Exmoor. Please advice. Please also suggest some place names inside the national park.

"I personally would say Dartmoor, there is some fantastic scenery there and incredible views. On a clear day you can see for miles. There are also many streams with bridges over where the cattle, sheep and ponies gather to drink, fabulous. Around Widdecombe is very pretty as is Two Bridges. A place that is more like a ghost town nowadays is Princetown, home of Dartmoor Prison but I would say some good photography for you. Hope you get the photographs you are looking for and have fun!"

"Do a TINY bit of research and find out which of the two you are more likely to see pony's enjoying freedom to roam and you have it cracked. One of the most inspiring things I have ever seen in 40 years has been a small herd of horses allowed to roam. The head stallion was in his element and the yougsters were being the handfull you would expect from youngsters. I enjoyed it in a similar way to the time I asked for my wife's hand in marriage and she gave it - it was a COMPLETE pleasure. To paint a scene like what I witnessed would be awesome!"

"It's a matter of personal taste, so why not do a search for "exmoor landscape" and "dartmoor landscape" on the leading picture agencies such as and Not only will it give you an idea of which is more to your taste, but it will also give you inspiration for some places to shoot and photographers to emulate. Regards, Paul "

"Both have their best points. Exmoor:- Dulverton to Lynton. Dartmoor:- Bovey Tracey, Heltor, or Moretonhampstead to Princetown. Hope this helps. Good luck, and enjoy..."

"Dartmoor! If you look at this link, you can go on a virtual visit around the park, so you can in effect do a mini reccie of the area - might help you to visualise and plan out your two day trip more effectively. "

"Dartmoor, the rock formations on Dartmoor are far more impressive, creating interesting foreground references to a generally scenic view: Bowerman's Nose GR 742804 Scorhill Circle GR 655874 Lints Tor GR 579875 Watern Tor Thirlstone GR 629868 There are also hundreds of bridges, viaducts, standing stones, gate posts, stone crosses, churches, ruins and more tors"

When a picture emerged of a hulking beast stalking the moors, one woman wasn't chilled by rumours of its gaping jaws, glowing eyes and blood-curdling howls. That's because Lucinda Reid recognised the "Demon of Dartmoor" as ... her pet dog.

A photograph of an animal taken on Dartmoor is "almost certainly" not a big cat, according to a local expert.
