This image is from the first year of my “diamond decade” project. I have divided the UK into 10 regions and will visit and photograph each region in Autumn and Spring, my two favourite seasons, hoping to complete the trip by the time I am 70. This particular photograph was taken on the edge of Stowes Hill on Bodmin Moor. On this particular evening I decided to stay on the moor until virtually nightfall and was rewarded with this tear in the clouds that produced a most eery light that gave the stones a purplish hue and acted as a spotlight onto the level areas of the moor below the abandoned distant quarry.
