Dartmoor Walk 11 Gt Links Tor and The Dunnagoats

20 Mar 2022 9:33AM   Views : 430 Unique : 245

This week I was on my own, I took the Bronica SQ-Ai up to Great Links Tor via Lower and Higher Dunnagoat looking for some compositions for a project I am doing. I was shooting Kodak Portra 160 but replicating the shots on digital with my Fuji X-T2s, not all the shots I took with those were square or for the project though.

Gt Links Tor shot with Fuji X-T2 and 10-24 lens.

On the way up to the Dunnagoats I shot Arms Tor on the Bronica.

Once on Lower Dunnagoat I set the Bronica up again to shoot Gt Links Tor.

The shot.

Whilst on that high ground I took a shot of Bleak House with Green Tor in the background.

From Lower Dunnagoat I went up to Higher Dunnagoat for another composition.

Then on to Gt Links itself, the remaining shots are all with the Fuji X-T2s and 16-55 lens.

There are some splendid views from this area, here we see the MoD Firing Range warning flags on Kitty Tor and Yes Tor in the far distance.

From the forward slopes of Gt Links Tor you can see Arms and Brat Tor with that distinctive Widgery Cross on top.

Also fine views across to Willsworthy Ranges.

After Arms Tor I headed back to the car, en-route I spotted this gnarly old Gorse Bush growing out of the wall.

Thanks Colin and yes it was very nice to get almost 6 miles in and stay dry, I did pack my waterproofs though it is Dartmoor after all.
