Dartmoor weathered stones in calm weather

Belstone Formations

Belstone Tor, Dartmoor, UK

Taken a few weeks ago during a short spell of sunny weather, I headed back to familiar territory up on Belstone Ridge. I'm fond of this location due to the great rock formations and relative solitude this tor has from the main crowds of visitors. A few wispy strips of cirrus began to form on the horizon to the north, running about as usual I found a composition that worked along with the strong side light from the setting sun. However the light didn't stay for long as a bank of cloud on the horizon ended the shoot prematurely. Needless to say I walked away knowing I had salvaged something from this fleeting sunlight we've experienced over the winter/spring months.
