It was minus 6 degrees here on Dartmoor. My little dog (Ella) stepped from the car on to the snow and almost disappeared! The light was fantastic, the air was crisp and all sounds were muted. I had tried to get to Haytor but this was the nearest I got. Haytor was about 3.5 miles away but I’d already passed too many vehicles that had gotten stuck and didn’t want to run out of luck.

A fuji 10mm-24mm lens was used at the 10mm end on a Fuji XT2 mirrorless camera.

Slightly abstract image here. Made up of three different textures. Concrete, water and sand. The colours and contrast have been exaggerated massively to create more impact. The shot was made looking downwards from a seaside carpark (lower left of frame) into the water (middle of frame) with the submerged boat ramp on the right side of the frame. I think though that  knowing this makes the picture less interesting.

On my way back home from a trip on to Dartmoor I turned a corner to see the South Devon lower fields lit up by the sun. The contrast between the snow covered fields and the dark wintery hedgerows and trees looked fabulous. The light gave the landscape a ‘graphic’ two dimensional quality that I thought a monotone approach would suit.

The image was taken on a fairly long range telephoto lens at the 400mm end (equivalent to about 600mm on a 35mm full frame camera)
