ZigZag

My love affair with Dartmoor continues.

 

The big clouds we have been having this week have been great for chasing pools of light across fantastic landscapes. This time to was good enough to mimic the zigzag lines the walls made cross these fields.

 

Of the 20 or so shots I took, this was the best most nicely spread patches of light and shade, and fortunately one of the ones which didn't suffer from camera shake. The wind was very strong just here and even with a bungee tied from the tripod to the camera bag, quite a number of the shots were just a tiny bit blurred.

 

It was worth the 3am start, although this was after the unplanned 2 hr kip on the side of a hill, awoken by a cuckoo, which, incidentally, got the time wrong, it definitely wasn't 10o'clock!
