Today’s post will be a short one. I’ve been laid up ill all week and haven’t been able to do much.
Outside I can see that we’ve had the first real frost of this winter. As I haven’t been out, I decided to share a shot from the start of this year which was the last time I can recall there being a frost.
I shot this at Higger Tor in the Peak District, shortly after sunrise. You can see the sun rising to the left of the frame although it’s shrouded in a bank of fog. The unusual stones at the bottom centre of the frame are known as the Kit-Kat stones – I can’t think why.
The camera I used was a Fuji XT3 with Fuji 10-24 lens at 24mm. It’s a tripod mounted exposure of 1/7 second at f/13.0 and ISO160. I processed the RAW file using DxO PhotoLab 6 which has become my default RAW converter for the Fuji. I then followed that with some work in the Nik Collection.
Despite being laid low by this bug, I did manage to publish a review video of the new ACDSee Photo Studio 9 for Mac. You can watch it on YouTube now https://youtu.be/b8cI9VJ-g1U to hear my croaky voice.
I hope you like the photo and have a great weekend.

Foreground, mid and distance? Great example. The mist finishes it off nicely.
It’s the name that got me! Where on earth did that come from, Higger Tor!
Thanks. I don’t know the origin of the name but it may be derived from Higher Tor. The one you can see in the midground is called Carl Wark – go figure that one out.
As a Yorkshireman I’ll leave it be and chuckle!
