What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? I have photographed a few sunsets but had never given a sunrise a shot. I've always really wanted to spend some time in Dartmoor taking photographs. I hit the road really early and climbed two very rocky slopes in the dark in order to reach these Tors. There are a few other images from on and around Dartmoor here throw in. I am pretty pleased with the results but could do with an upgrade from my D90 to give me just that little bit more resolution to play with. I hope you like them.

Can you tell us about any special equipment or techniques that you used? I used my D90 with a 17-55mm 2.8, this rarely comes off the camera. Filters were going to be tricky to use here due to the outcrops of rock, so I opted to under expose to retain the beautiful colours in the sky and gently bring the rest up in Lightroom. I would say the biggest skill applied though was patience, waiting for breaks in the rain and waiting for the light to hit the rocks in just the right way. Oh, and a great deal of luck.

Happy New Year Paul and everyone.

Beautiful shots. Where is this location?

Thank you Sarah. The location is Dartmoor in the UK. It's a great place to wander, even if you're not taking pictures.

Truly stunning work; shows an intimate relationship to nature and a genuine appreciation for both cold and warm light. I genuinely wish I had been there....

A bit overexposed in the sky. HDR is needed here.
