St Michael de Rupe

By Techno      
Since I started taking Pics 9 Years ago, photography has opened up a new world to me, it has taken me to venues and locations I'm sure I would not have seen or even bothered to see, this location is just one such place, ok, not exactly unknown in the world of photography, but, viewing it for the first time I thought this has been purpose built set for an Hollywood block buster, even more so, after recent refurbishment apparently through years of sitting on this Tor overlooking Dartmoor with nature taking its toll, we arrived here after a wonderful 7mile trek across Dartmoor, you know the score, bag full of kit, most of it not used and feeling a little past my sell by date, so didn't fancy the walk up the Tor for the more recognised compositions, but for certain I shall return to do so, and, I highly recommend you pay a visit if down this next of the woods, car parking and a toilet block all conveniently adjacent.....

Wonderful lighting and an excellent composition, Mal.
A narrative that makes me want to visit this location.
I know the feeling about the 'bag full of kit' ...... and the sell by date reference!!WinkWink
A superb capture.

I got to the stage of going away on holiday bogged down with equipment, most of which I didn't use! I've scaled down to a smallish bag, big enough for DLSR with lens attached and another lens and that's it - apart from spare batteries! Grin A fine shot here, Mal, worth the trek - nice mono work too Smile
