ANOTHER DARTMOOR SHOOT

October 30, 2009  •  Leave a Comment

Another Saturday morning and another visit to Dartmoor.

Looking out of the window at 5am I could see some stars so I figured at least we are going to get some broken cloud.

After setting off at 6.10am I was driving out to Dartmoor and thought I had left things a little too late to go where I had initially planned. It was getting light I could easilyy make out the cloud cover and things were looking really good for a great sunrise.

I had to change plans to ensure I could capture the sunrise in time that resulted in another visit to Combestone Tor.
Combestone is so easy to shoot because, as I have blogged before, it is so easy to access. The car park is just 50yds from the Tor and its all pretty level. I use it because of the time factor more than anything else.

However many times I have visited the same Tor I can always find new compositions, the sky and light are always changing and lend to building different compositions on each visit.

I got to the car park, the only other vehicle was a huge campervan that seemed very quite, it was clear no one was stirring on HMS campervan. I almost wanted to knock on the campervan door to make them aware of the awesome sunrise, not sure how that would turn out so needless to say I didnt pay any further attention to the campervan.

Rushing to get ready I prepped the camera on the parcel shelf of the car, adaptor rings went flying as I struggled to get the polarising filter set up. Oddly enough when I went back to the car  to get something I found my 67mm adaptor ring in a puddle behind the car, good job it was only the adapter ring and no further damage to report to that.

Anyways a great visit to a familiar location with wonderful light and cloud cover.
