Dartmoor & West Devon

Dartmoor is a magical place.  I just love to be there whatever the weather.  When the light is good it can be out of this world, but it also has a mighty presence when it is bad. 

I love to photograph Dartmoor in Black & White, but I am increasingly using colour.  Sometimes colours can be unbelievable, especially at dawn and dusk.

Here you will find locations all over the Moor; from  Merrivale Stone Row to Tavy Cleave, High Willhays to the magnificent Sheepstor, Wistmans Wood to Black Tor Copse, Windy Post Cross to Meldon Reservoir, Great Staple Tor to Brentor Church and many, many more.
