A few shots that I took whilst on a two day stroll around London. There is a method to the madness of course. I’ve left a few clues in the images I’ve been taking, and very soon I will be making some rather exciting announcement’s.

I recently went to Penzance in Cornwall for a show from Spectrum (see more here). I traveled down with my friend Mark Lascelles Thornton (see his work here) and we stayed at a brilliant hotel in Mousehole. On the way back we decided to awake at 5.30 to catch the sunrise over Dartmoor. We set of from the hotel in pitch darkness but by the time we got to Dartmoor we realised we were in the clouds and for the sunrise we had a view about 5 inches from the ends of our feet. As the clouds lifted I managed to get some great photos of the landscape.
Both myself and John Hooper recently visited Cornwall in support of one of our favourite charities Spectrum (www.spectrumasd.org). It was my first visit in two years, and a most enjoyable trip down memory lane to the county I once called home.
It also gave us an opportunity to visit Dartmoor National Park on route back to London. We’d left Mousehole (near Penzance) at 6am in the hopes of capturing a glorious sunrise from on top of the moors. Alas, this was not to be. we spent the lions share of the day with our heads in the cloud (no pun intended), but I think the results are more interesting. After all, what would Dartmoor be without a sense of brooding. It is a bleak, yet beautiful landscape. Quite other worldly.
Below are are few snaps from our trip taken with my D4. Be sure Mr Hoopers medium format images will look rather brilliant once printed, and you can see more of his stuff by clicking: www.johnhooper.net
