Dartmoor Tors at Twilight
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. My youngest had tried previously to visit the stones but we got chased away by torrential rain. I spoke more about our trip and posted more photos on my other photography blog.
As the sun dipped below the horizon I knew I had to work fast. I had envisaged several shots that I wanted to get once the subtle tones of twilight made their appearance, and this was one of them. I think the tors on the horizon have so much potential; I still don’t think I have captured them at their best. The tors are Middle Staple Tor, the iconic Great Staple Tor and Roos Tor. I love the house in the bottom of the picture which in the low light looks isolated against the landscape. I would have liked to capture this with multiple exposures but the cloud was moving really fast with the wind, so I had to capture the scene in one image and crop it. The Canon 5D Mark 2 is a great camera though so a 30 inch print is still easily doable.
