I think my love of Dartmoor national park has rubbed off on my sons, as well as photography. Both of them like to come to the moor with me to take photos nowadays. I took them with me to the Merrivale stones for the sunset. Read More
I took this photo of a lower rock formation on Great Staple Tor on my first trip to the Tor with my camera back in January this year. The sunset was quite a disappointment in its own right but they subtle colours left in the sky after were quite nice. I remember taking this in the hope that it would be a lesser captured object compared to the well-known main structures of Great Staple Tor. Read More
I took this photo of Great Staple Tor on Dartmoor in January. I love the subtle tones throughout the scene as sunset transitions into twilight. I think the mood of the image is one of calm, which I think the vapour trail in the sky contributes to. I can’t wait to head back to Dartmoor I think that as a landscape photographer I could happily revisit it’s tors and stones time and time again.
This is photo of Welcombe Mouth taken around last light. I love taking photos during sunset but sometimes the blue hour is even better, where there are lots of subtle tones and plenty of mood. I love the motion in the waves and the detail in the small clouds. Read More
I took this photo of Great Staple Tor during a visit to Dartmoor a few weeks ago long after the sun had made its’ way below the horizon. I realised that I take far too few landscape photographs in a portrait orientation and figured that I should start to do so a lot more, especially as I would like to get more images featured in magazines and other publications.

I like this photo of Great Staple Tor on Dartmoor because there are people in the shot. I would normally wait until people are out of the way before taking a photo but in this case I loved how the two photographers gave a real sense of scale to the Great Staple Tor. Although the wide angle exposure accentuates the scale it is still impressive as you walk up the moorland towards the rocks as they begin to impose against the sky.
I went to Instow initially last night to test out my new wide angle lens. It was really busy though and the tide was right in meaning that I couldn’t get near to any boats, so I headed off to Westward Ho! instead. I left it quite last minute so had to scramble to try and find an OK composition or two before the light faded. There wasn’t much cloud apart from in the distant horizon so I wasn’t overly expecting a great shot. Read More
