Merrivale Sunset - Fine Art Print

The prehistoric site of Merrivale on the west side of the moor includes a spectacular pair of stone rows along the gentle ridge of Longash Common and many other ancient cists, cairns and circles.
.
I have visited this mysterious place many times, with and without my camera and unlike anywhere else I know on Dartmoor, it connects us with the people of thousands of years ago. 
I can imagine people walking along these rows as part of some ritual or ceremony, the meaning of which is still unknown to us.
.
This photograph was shot the day before new year’s day. My tripod was as low as I could get it to bring the stones above the horizon and I made the exposure just as the setting sun popped out from behind the largest monolith of the north row.
