Granite outcrop above Sandy Hole Pass on the East Dart river, Dartmoor
Sold Oil painting 40 X 20 inches
A long title, but this imposing outcrop of granite does not have the title of a Tor
as it is found only a few feet above the flank of the East Dart River in the heart
of the north Moor just above Sandy Hole Pass.
The wildness of this spot hides an industrial past. Tin was mined here in Tudor times
causing great upheaval to the landscape and river. Evidence remains all around.
I have tried to capture the brooding change of weather with rain clouds gathering
over Flat Tor & Cut Hill in the distance, while a solitary sheep gives scale to the
massive granite boulders in the foreground.
