The Baskervilles' Sunset by PastyGuy The Baskervilles' Sunset by PastyGuy
Image

Hound tor is one of the most well known tors on Dartmoor, home to Conan Doyle's 'The hound of the Baskervilles'. Steeped in history and myth it's certainly worth a visit plus it doesn't involve a long hike! After a long day at work I decided to take a detour on the way home as the skies looked promising, however the light faded behind clouds fairly early and I almost called it a day... Determined to make the most of the late sunset I waited and was rewarded as the sun appeared below the imposing weather front.

Location

Hound Tor, Dartmoor, Devon, UK

terrific shot man. Do you use a star effect filter on your lens when you shoot into the sun? Or is that just how the shot turns out stopped way down?

The star is produced from two main elements, first the aperture needs to be small, around f/16 - f/22 then it depends on the lens where the glass elements do the rest of the work, however some are better than others.
