Dartmoor Farm Granite

It's been a while since I posted a photo, having been focusing all my energy on marketing. It's amazing how quickly time slips by...

Granite and lichen

This one was partially processed in the digital darkroom and I bumped into it today while having a tidy up (and there's another one on the way).

Dartmoor Farm Granite

On a grass verge bordering the car park for the Dartmoor Miniature Pony Centre, the function of this and the other granite boulders must be to stop cars parking where they shouldn't.

I'm not sure what the hollowed out granite was originally used for but it's now home to some wild grasses and what looks like chickweed. It's completely covered in lichen so I guess it's been many tens of years, maybe more than a hundred, since last used for its original purpose.
