Professional photographer Matthew Richards captured these images of the East Devon Hunt who were out near Honiton on the shortest day.
Matthew’s photos show the hunt staff out with hounds near Rawridge, near Honiton, on the winter solstice, December 21.
Hounds were following a previously-laid scent, set by hunt staff.
The East Devon Hunt will be gearing up to meet over the Christmas period, and New Year’s Day.
Photojournalist Matthew, who lives in Devon, has worked as a picture editor. His work has appeared in numerous publications.
