Alpenglow


Photo Information
Alpenglow lights the fringe of a weather front approaching from the east, above the flanks of Yartor Down and Combestone Tor. The wooded vale is that of the O Brook, a tributary of the West Dart River.

Thanks very much Giulio I find it hard to resist opportunities of alpenglow or (western hemisphere) afterglow, such oppulent skylight is ensorcelling in the way it bathes land and/ or sea during long exposures.

Many Thanks indeed Nigel It was a great moment. After pushing the car, much to my kids’ amazement, I tried to hoodwink my 5 year old son that I had gained superpowers by borrowing the hammer of his favourite hero Thor. He said “well where was the thunder & lightning then?!”. Outwitted!

Many Thanks indeed Malc It was a spectacular moment in time and worth all the efforts. I can see why on his roof rack and very tall tripod in his boot. I am certain that such a combination would have made this sequence easier to set up!

Many Thanks for your encouraging comments Bill The challenges of precarious perches on drystone walls & knife edge ridges of tors; concerns and attempts to flee ocean waves coming in further than expected; abseiling down gorges; climbing a standing stone to avoid the intimidation of 20 galloping bullocks whilst alone on the high moors… and the like are part of what I enjoy in the experience of making landscape photos. Some of my favourite photos have been made in such circumstances. It is that sense of involvement in a place that I feel gives opportunities for my attempts at expressing a sense of connection to what lays before my eyes. Such immersive experiences, when they bear the fruit of a successful photograph, often feel all the more rewarding, to me at least, in light of overcoming such obstacles.

Sometimes, paradoxically, it can be in a tranquil place without obstacles that such rewards are possible . An opportunity where one has the chance of unhurried wanderings, where the mere luxury of time to engage and ‘see’ rather than just ‘look’ - that such an immersion can occur.

A most eerie light but, it makes the photo!
