Sunset on Combestone Tor

I’d had a day in Exeter on a course, as I’d been a naughty boy when driving a smidge too fast on the Llanberis Pass on my trip to Snowdonia back in early June (see here). As a result I’d had tea in Exeter before heading back along the A38. The weather was gorgeous and a bright idea of a sunset on Dartmoor was founded. After having never been to Combestone Tor until a few weeks ago, I visited again, so twice in a matter of months!! The sunset was lovely and only my second good one this year with my camera.

Down Ridge rises on the left as Combestone Tor frames the orange sky. Time to head home.
