‘Mystical’ the name of the ongoing photo series by British photographer Neil Burnell aims to silently capture ‘the most haunted location in Dartmoor’ bathing in deep fog. Photographer loves to travel to far locations, away from civilization, untouched by men. Intertwined branches, stones covered with moss, and of course the wood of dwarf oak trees. The Wistman’s Wood in Dartmoor, Devon England mysterious and dark, nestled on the eastern slopes of the West Dart river, adorned with boulders, lichens and ancient smell of uncorrupted nature. Tales of Druids, ghosts and the Devil, all await for you in the depths of the forest. “I have probably visited the woodland around 20 times in the last year, but unfortunately it has only had the required mist on two occasions. Photographing it without the mist is a hard task and almost impossible to make images with the atmosphere I am looking for,” Burnell shares about his working process.
