Another Misty Landscape from Bole Hill Quarry

Last week, I shared an image that I had taken at Bole Hill Quarry in the Peak District. This week it’s the turn of another from the same shoot. It’s difficult to describe quite how wet and unpleasant it was when I took this shot, although worse rain was still to come. The only thing … Continue reading Another Misty Landscape from Bole Hill Quarry

Wet & Misty in the Peak District

On Wednesday, I arrived home from a trip to the Lake District where the colours were turning autumnal. Feeling motivated to get out for some photography, I checked the weather forecast. I could see that a mist was predicted in some parts of the Peak District the following day. It looked like there would be … Continue reading Wet & Misty in the Peak District

Forward to Autumn and More Forest Photography

Here in the North West of England, the weather has turned decidedly chilly in the past couple of weeks. Whilst it doesn’t often feel warm where I live, the house feels more like a fridge at the moment. It may have something to do with the 24” thick solid stone walls. With the feel of … Continue reading Forward to Autumn and More Forest Photography

Striving for Natural Colour in Landscape Photos

One thing that I’ve become almost obsessed with recently is creating natural colour in my landscape photos. Because of this, I’ve found myself reworking some of last year’s photos using the latest editing tools. Here’s a great example from the Panasonic G9. Surprise View in the Peak District. Panasonic G9. I’ve reworked this several times … Continue reading Striving for Natural Colour in Landscape Photos

Exposure Blending on Derwent Edge

Last week, I ventured out in the evening to Derwent Edge in the Peak District. I also shared one of the photos that I shot on this blog. In this week’s blog post I want to share another but from earlier in the evening. I shot this using my Fuji XT3 with Fuji 16-80 lens … Continue reading Exposure Blending on Derwent Edge

Photographing Sunset on Derwent Edge

The last time I posted here, I was getting all stressed about having yet more interruptions to my photography. I then took some time out for a family holiday where I picked up COVID. Fortunately, I’m now recovered (but still suffering from dizzy spells) and managed to venture out on Wednesday evening. Boy, am I … Continue reading Photographing Sunset on Derwent Edge

Soft Pastel Light is What I Want

I’ve mentioned this a couple of times over the years. For me, the best light for photographing the landscape happens after the sun has set. When the sun is above and near the horizon, the light can be wonderful and fills the landscape with drama. But it feels like someone shouting look at me, almost … Continue reading Soft Pastel Light is What I Want

Blue Hour on Stanage Edge

Yesterday after lunch, I headed over to Stanage Edge in the Peak District to meet a friend. The weather forecast looked good, and I was hopeful for a repeat of the great light from a couple of weeks ago on Carhead Rocks. After meeting up at Stanage, we spent an hour walking the edge to … Continue reading Blue Hour on Stanage Edge

Dramatic Light in the Peak District

Despite struggling to work up any enthusiasm for photography (as mentioned last week), I did get out on Saturday, meeting up with another photographer. It was great to get out and clear my head, and we ended up at Carhead Rocks in the Peak District. Looking back at my images now, I’m very pleased that … Continue reading Dramatic Light in the Peak District
