Peak District National Park, Derbyshire, England, UK


This is an image from Peak District National Park in Derbyshire. Rumour has it that the Peak District is the second busiest national park in the world, after Mt Fuji.

But actually, where I am here, near Kinder Scout, I saw only a few people along the footpath every hour or so, if that. It didn’t really feel busy, and I have been here a few times before in the middle of summer, and it’s always the same.

This isn’t a spectacular landscape shot, but the colours really struck me. I love these moody deep gray skies that sweep across the landscape threatening rain. After I had processed this, I realised that the sky looks added on, but it’s not! Even when you are there the light from the clouds contrasts starkly with the light on the landscape, and creates a very atmospheric look.

So, that’s that….I haven’t posted anything for a while, but I am back now and will be posting much more regularly again….!

Bye for now.
