Chasing Dawn Clouds and morning Skies in North Devon England June 2015

A week spent up in the North part of the Devon coastline right near Exmoor National park proved to be a wonderful time. I wanted to do some personal photography as well as spend some time with my family and this area of England is truly superb. The weather was lovely, indeed it was very balmy most days with clouds in the early part of the day giving way to sunny skies towards afternoon. Early summer in Southern England is just wonderful with the woodlands so green and the vibrancy of the wildflowers. Some spots I chose to photograph, I ended up there again and the effort of getting up at 4.30 am well worth it. Let me tell you though, you cannot keep up the early rises for too long, so I made the choice to make the effort twice in the week I was there and luckily the mornings I chose were really really good for early light photography. I also spent some time in the woodlands of Exmoor and even spent some time photographing the wild ponies that roam the moors. Posted below are just a few of the images taken through the week that I have had time to process. The four panoramas shown here are all 7 image stitches taken on the vertical and represent over 220 degree views.
