what else do you want moor

Soon after September has arrived, I've started to feel a sense of autumn nearby. In this time of year, there is one place I like visiting. Yorkshire Moor. With just one aim, to see heather. I love the beautiful pinkish purple carpet. We visited at the end of school summer holiday. Out in a fresh air and cool winds, it was so refreshing. Beside my teenage step-son walking in a sort of cool and calm manner, I was dashing around in a joy with my camera. Every time I come up to Dales and Moors, I remind myself that how lucky to live in North Yorkshire to be able to see such a stunning view in a “just popping round” distance.
Beautiful but tough weather up there, all the natures and creatures have strong faces. Following those memories, I began to doodle some ideas. I may transfer this to my ceramics. Maybe using ceramic crayon like these... 
 Thank you moor & see you next year. xm
