Valley of flowers - Meldon Reservoir, Dartmoor

Misty valley at the Meldon Reservior covered with spring wild flowers. You can see the Meldon viaduct in the background which carried the London and South Western Railway (LSWR) across the West Okement River. The dual-tracked bridge opened to rail traffic in 1874 and operated until 1968. Its now part of a cycling track. Can you spot the river cutting through the valley?
