Hound Tor

On the back of my Skye trip I decided to extend my weekend in Dartmoor so that I could spend a little time exploring another unknown landscape for a few hours. I only had a day or so and was determined to make the best of it.

Typically, I rushed around Skye feeling the need to bring the place back with me photographically speaking. I felt that’s what would be expected of me by my audience and in some ways this detracted from the trip. I was keen to do something different here and decided to work with just one location whatever the weather.

Following research, and advice from the guy behind the counter in a Spar shop I opted for Hound Tor.

I arrived in drizzle and spent an hour or so getting to know the Tor before beginning to take my shots. The weather brightened which did indeed help even though I thought it wouldn’t as I had already chosen monochrome as my output.

I’ve posted a few images here, but there are more over on my projects page here. I’m currently in the process of creating a downloadable pdf book and a hard copy one from the set.
