Friday Image No. 164


Wet conditions in Padley Gorge, The Peak District. Fuji X-T2, 16-50 lens, ISO200, 0.9″ at f/13.0. Tripod mounted.

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.

  1. Love the picture, brought back childhood memories as Padley Gorge was one of my favourite places. A Sheffielder exiled in Bedfordshire.

  2. 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!
