Edge Of Darkness

24mm T/S


Bodmin moor last night .

Thought i would try something different from the normal coast shots , so i headed up in to the

Moors with Mark . Believe it or not i have lived in Cornwall for sixteen years and never set foot on the place , let along photograph it [ disgraceful ] . I don,t think i have ever been in such a quite location ever before , undisturbed for millions of years , and as barren as far as the eye can see , you kind of feel as though you have steeped back in to stone age times


After a lot of time spent looking for the most suitable composition we settled on this location as we thought it had plenty of depth and interest through our the whole frame . We knew that there was a good chance of some descent light and it did,n,t disappoint as the valley was constantly changing colour through out the evening and we managed quite a few frames by the time we had finished . In fact it was pitch black by the time we packed up and headed home , we lost our bearings and got lost in the dark , stumbling around in circles up to our knees up in thick peat bog with heavy bags on our backs , we got to the point of looking for some where dryish to kip for the night , but kept searching until we found a way out , eventually getting home late soaking wet , cold and caked in thick mud as i all so fell over in it . Who was it that said landscape photography is relaxing .
