Stong sunlight hits Vixen Tor on Dartmoor

Sphinx in profile

Vixen Tor, Dartmoor

Vixen Tor is also known as the Sphinx due to its apparent resemblance with the mythological creature. This title is confusingly also attributed to Hay Tor. On this day heavy rain had just passed and heavy cumulonimbus hung over head blotting out any light from the sky about. The sun shining under the cloud produced this wonderful contrast. This is in fact my favourite lighting condition because it really breathes drama into the Dartmoor landscape.
