Friday Image No. 149

View from Alderman’s Hill, Saddleworth. Fuji X-T2, 18-55 Fuji lens. ISO200, 1/220″ at f/9.0.

I suspect many of you, like me are guilty of ignoring the landscape on our doorstep.

Very recently I bought a book covering different photo locations in the Peak District ( As I started to flip through the book, I thought I recognised a couple of locations. Sure enough, there was a section on locations near to where I live and the book was talking enthusiastically about the area.

Looking at the images, I started to see the area with new eyes. I actually have some great photo locations on my doorstep but I seem to be ignoring them. To put this right, I thought I would share this image shot from Alderman Hill, looking across the valley. I took this on a walk from my house (only a couple of miles). Apparently, you can shoot some great sunrises and sunsets here.

I’m going to make an early New Year’s resolution. Over the next 12 months I’m going to shoot more images nearer to home and cut down on the travel.

I hope you have a great weekend.
