This isn’t a walk but just an evening drive out to catch a sunset after a hot day, so if you like a sunset then this will be your thing. This is a popular spot, even at 9.30 at night. Tripods were out for the other few out here to catch the sun. Myself, well I wandered around looking for some good photos, but mainly I enjoyed the sunset. I also managed a quick drive back and run around Tesco, for a late shop on the way home. A fine end to the day.
We drove to Combestone Tor, not my normal sunset destination but I fancied somewhere different from my normal place on Pork Hill/Cox Tor. These two were keeping a close eye on all the tripods and folk gathering for the sunset
Combestone Tor and a view north to the high spots around Cut Hill
Sharp Tor on the other side of the Dart Valley
Into the sun
The Dart Valley again, with Yar Tor and Corndon Tor over to the right
Princetown mast is on the left as I look into the sun again
Combestone Tor and the sunset. It had been a very hot day and it wasn’t cooling very much even up here on Dartmoor
Starting to set now and that;s Beardown Tors that are the sun’s destination
All peaceful across Dartmoor
A strip of cloud changes the intensity of sunset
A hawthorn and the sunset
Nearly gone now. Beardown Tors are silhouetted
Bit of zoom.
Last one before a dart to Tesco!
