The moment Mother Nature revealed this incredible moment in time for me to capture.
This is as close to the true beauty of Dartmoor so far.
I walked up to the top of West Mill Tor, Okehampton, Devon on a lovely evening. One of Dartmoor tricks is the weather can change in a matter of minutes.
When I hit the top it suddenly became very windy though the light was getting better and better coming closer to the golden hour.
So I start to walk around looking for a good angle. I knew what side of West Mill Tor I want to capture, and had in mind to create a sunstar to draw focus to these beautiful granite rock formations that almost look “placed” on top of these Tors.
All the elements of composing this image came together when I dropped down off some rocks to have a temporary rest from the constant battering wind, finding an amazing view was right there in front of me, the sun was still a little way from the granite stones of West Mill Tor giving me time to wait for the perfect moment.
I felt very blessed to have this magical evening on Dartmoor. It is good for the soul.
