This was my final photograph I captured of Higger Tor from an autumnal sunset visit in November.
The sun was very low to the horizon at this point, but I was very happy that the threatening band of cloud held off long enough for me to compose this shot. The rocks that form the foreground interest is of course the prehistoric embankment of Carl Wark, which is interpreted to be part of an Iron Age Hill fort.
For once I think everything came together just right in this image. I like the composition, I absolutely love the buttery gold side light casting it’s gorgeous, soft, warm glow across the landscape and I also have good cloud cover in the background. I will even stick my neck out and say I think this is the best photograph to date that I have ever managed to capture.
I will let you all decide that last point though.
