Peak District National Park, Derbyshire

Words/Photographs: Tony Eveling

Kinder escarpment, Peak District National Park, Derbyshire, England, UK

This is an escarpment that leads up to the Pennine Way, which is the main walking track that runs through the park. It was a grim(ish) blustery day in August although it’s the time of year where the sun can burn off all the clouds and when torrential downpours and bright sunshine go hand in hand. There is a reason why the British are obsessed with the weather!!

And of course, it’s great for the photography to get such a variety of weather in such a narrow time band, and it allows, or forces the photographer to be a little spontaneous.
