Restless by PastyGuy Restless by PastyGuy

Over the past 3 years I have been meaning to visit this unique location in spring for its annual bloom of bluebells. I have recently changed jobs and now work 10 miles from the edge of the moor which is a huge advantage and given me the opportunity to come back a few times so I could make the most of the area.

High winds and dotted skies made the entire shoot a gambling game, on the way to another spot I saw the clouds break momentarily and got one shot before the light disappeared. Goes to show having your equipment ready to go at all times pays off.

Location

Dartmoor, Devon, UK

over hill and dale bluebells tinkle
