Wistmans Wood by Alex37 Wistmans Wood by Alex37
Wistmans Wood: Overgrown and overrated
Although Wistmans does have its charm the popularity amongst the public and photographers alike is slightly lost on me. It's not that I dont think it's a nice place, I do, its just that there are so many better woodland areas around Dartmoor and Devon.The trampling of what would have been a completely overgrawn area and the grazing of sheep, slightly ruins it for me. At no point did I get the feeling that this was anything but spoilt wilderness. I will return here, to search for better spots and perhaps find that untouched peice of woodland I was after. I think you really need a day here to make the most of it.

I agree with you. The woodland is best when it's untouched by anyone. Except for the eyes.

I agree, every time I have been there it never seems to get the light, owing to its north/south orientation at the bottom of a re'entrant.

I am not really sure that its a light issue, at least not for me. I prefer overcast conditions for woodland and I dont think that sunrise and sunset would improve the options. In fact the highlights created from sun through the foliage would be a bit of a distaction, this is why I always think it is best to shoot most details when it is overcast. It is only the sweeping vista that I feel requires excellent lighting.
