Leaning In - The Night
Familiar stars and constellations form a line rising up behind this windswept tree on the side of Hookney Tor in Dartmoor National Park, Devon. Just above the horizon is Sirius, the brightest star in the sky, followed by the unmistakeable outline of Orion the Hunter. Above this lies the triangular face of Taurus the Bull with the orange star Aldebaran, the disc of the Moon and the bright, compact cluster of the Pleiades. The glow on the horizon comes from the small town of Chagford, a few miles away.
