Merrivale standing stone, Dartmoor by David Gibbeson

Merrivale Standing Stone, Dartmoor

Published: Last Updated on 7 views

This is a photo of the south standing stone at Merrivale with the stone circle in the background. Composition with this shot was quite challenging because I was trying to show a sense of scale. I want standing stone to contrast against the horizon while showing the stone circle and show the snow covered Great Mis Tor in the distance.

Showing Great Mis Tor shows that the moor is actually really cold. I think this adds to the credibility of the tiny bit of ice covered grass. Without the ice and snow it could be taken on any morning with the warm colours from the dawn sunlight.
