staple by sassaputzin staple by sassaputzin
A place ive been to many times but never with any success...

Staple Tor is incredibly accessible and one of the most photogenic tors geologically so getting it to yourself can be difficult...

Pretty much everything fitted into place for this shot, there had been thick cloud all day that seemed to break readily in the high wind so the chance of some good cloud at sunset and a gap in the clouds was promising. I headed to the western side of the moor watching the weather as i drove. After looking at a few different locations i decided that the rocks at Staple tor would frame the setting sun best..
The contrast of the light was difficult to balance i used a .9 soft grad and also bracketed shots to blend later.

That is stunning! :) The way the sun draws these straight narrow beams of light is cool!
