Dartmoor Winter by Alex37 Dartmoor Winter by Alex37
The roads froze overnight and I couldn't drive to any of the places I had initially planned to shoot for a snowy sunrise. That said I do live within an hours walk of one of the best tors on the moor. This morning was as good as it gets for me, this is just the light I would want, the pink in the sky was particularly vivid.

the composition is very strong here, and that band of subtle pink separating the cooler tones is magical, very nice work

Wonderful work Alex! The colors are just right here and you found some excellent foreground/background subjects. It's almost enough to make me wish for winter...instead of palm trees. :)

Thank you Judd. Winter is actually my favourite season, so I'm not so jealous of your palm trees :P

I love it when you get a good sunrise or sunset after a fresh snowfall it allows for great photos....unfortunately that rarely happens here. Well done Alex.

Thanks James. This is actually my first experience of these conditions, snow is very irregular here.

We get snow fairly regularly here which is good but it loses its magic after a while.

You and your bloody Tors mate. Great work, but you don't need me commenting on every piece when you know it's great yourself.

well I know when I have taken a good photo, but it's good to hear the opinions of others, not least because sometimes I get it wrong

Now this one definitely struck me as soon as I seen it in my watch list!
Superb composition Alex, love the positioning of the Tors rocks, and the pink band in the sky is beautiful, really lifts the shot for me.
