I like it - really great picture. Looking it up in "The Old Stones" I did find an interesting quote about the circle:-

“In wet weather, the extensive mire just to the northeast of the circle threatens to engulf the walker who strays from the high ground to the west. Beware!” Martyn Copcutt

Andy Burnham. The Old Stones (pp. 71-72). Watkins Publishing. Kindle Edition.

As far as my experience of walking on Dartmoor goes that describes the whole moor but you must have found a safe way off to be able to show us the picture ;D
