Martian moorland

This is Brown Willy and the surrounding peat bog of Bodmin Moor captured from a Cessna light aircraft (window open). I cropped the image postbox-style to eliminate parts of the wing and to accentuate the openness of the moorland. The rustic colours give it a rather “Martian” feel.
