Storm Portal

Storm Portal
Photo of the Week 

Photo Information
Peering into the holloway portal of the ancient Jackman's Lane - a drovers' route between Totnes and Harberton.

This was photographed during the copious wind-driven snows of Storm Emma as it's moist air collided with the 'Beast from the East' Siberian winds (resulting from a recent Sudden Stratospheric Warming / Polar Vortex split).

The winds were fierce and the falling snow incessant as I made the photo. Though I was cosy in my mountaineering clothing and boots.

The illumination of the holloway was from 'light-painting' using a 5700 lumen CREE L.E.D. bike light.

Many thanks for your kind words and enthusiasm Ged 😊 I got a little bit of relative shelter being in the sunken lane😂 Bit crazy walking out in the countryside during a Met office Red Warning ⚠ but I have the right gear and years of winter mountaineering experience experience😊

Very effective picture - and somewhat dedicated going out there with a tripod and camera kit no matter your warm clothing!

Many thanks for your kind words David. I had dreamt of seeing the holloway laden with snow many times and upon this rare chance, I decided to go and see it for real. It was a fascinating experience and the ambience of deep time was palpable

Many thanks for your generous and enthusiastic comments David I have been long under the spell of these ancient sunken conduits through the hills, so it was a delight to see this one I have slowly come to know - in conditions I had never witnessed it in before

Man thanks for you kind comments Sally... though the last part may make me more spooked next time I visit the holloway after dark on a mountain bike ride or photography exploration
