Yesterday I was out with a friend in the Peak District shooting. The weather had been forecast as dry but misty/foggy. Then at the last minute the forecast changed to rain all day. Despite this we decided to wait it out in Padley Gorge and eventually we had a dry spell, or at least dry enough to shoot.
Despite the poor conditions, one benefit of the wet is that the foliage responds really well. The only thing I regret about this image is that I didn’t use my polarising filter to reduce the glare on grass in the middle of the frame. Having said that, had I used the polarising filter, the saturation effect may have been too strong.
I hope you like the image and have a great weekend.

Lovely, Robin, thanks. Happy Holidays to you!
Thank you. Hope you have a great 2018.
Lovely photo! What are the stones?
Spot on. Very typical of the Peak District. You can find them everywhere but this was a little quarry where they were made- I think
Some of your Friday Images haven’t really wowed me, but this one is STUNNING!
Thanks. Sorry I can’t always produce a good Friday Image. If I shoot 5 images a year that I think are good, I’m having an excellent year.
Love the picture, brought back childhood memories as Padley Gorge was one of my favourite places. A Sheffielder exiled in Bedfordshire.
Commiserations on your exile.
Lovely image. Don’t think you needed the polariser it’s great as it is.
Yes, the misty light could have been lost with a polariser. Lovely the way it is, soft but colorful.
I know I’m saying what everyone else has. but it’s a lovely photo, Robin! Wish I’d taken it. My wife and I spent a week in the Peak District this year and this picture makes me want to go back!! Hope you have an enjoyable time over the next few days. Happy Christmas!
Best time of year is in August when the heather is out. It can be a bit harsh at this time of year.
Have a great 2018.
