THIS stunning photograph has won Stogursey man Bob Small a family walking trip worth more than £1,000.
Mr Small, a sales manager, won the outdoor brand Hi- Tec’s ‘Inspire Me’ photography competition with his ‘Sunrise at Hay Tor’.
Helen Durant of Hi-Tec said the company wanted to encourage people to take advantage of the country’s walking routes by sending in their favourite images.
Mr Small said: “I am really happy my image has been chosen by Hi-Tec and others can see the inspiring landscape of Dartmoor.
“The image was taken as the sun rose and the low rays hit the granite outcrop of Hay Tor.
“As a keen amateur photographer I always try and use the best light at dawn or dusk, so the chance to visit this wild Dartmoor feature was too good to miss.
“I think the resulting image demonstrates the inspirational beauty of the British landscape.”
