Dartmoor National Park is possibly the wildest place in southern England. It’s also one of the wettest. The endless moorlands of Dartmoor stretch across Devon, dotted with bizarre rock formations known as tors, with rugged hawthorns rearing up across the landscape.

In river valleys ancient oak woodlands linger still amongst granite boulders awash with lichens and mosses.

My favourite things to photograph on Dartmoor are the solitary trees standing alone in the landscape. These veteran trees are much older than you might thing, so slow is their growth in inhospitable conditions.
