The Dragon's BackParkhouse Hill bathed in morning sunlight during winter. This landscape was once drowned as an atoll and now dominates everything around it.
FlamesAutumn trees set fire to the cold waters of Ladybower. Taken on a still and quiet October morning as the light mist left the water's surface. The water had a layer of algae which was distrupted only by the passing ducks. Until creating this photograph I had been to Ladybower many times and found it difficult to create a photograph which felt original or matching my sense of this place as a calm but functional landscape.
Winter HillWin Hill basking in the few rays of winter light before the end of the day. Anyone who takes the time to view my portfolio of images will see the outline of Win Hill appear more often than any other peak. It's a place I have been to in times of adventure, sadness, strangeness and joy.
Ancient LightTime after time Pevril Castle enjoys basking in the autumn sun. and sitting pretty above the cloud inversion, Castleton, Derbyshire.
StatureOne of those rare and truly natural fairytale environments. A moment of mist passing through the woodland like a spirit out of the blue.
ApexThe sheer A frame face of Parkhouse Hill rising straight out of the farmland.
Dance in the Fire LightThe beautiful Peak District woodland in autumn, basking in the late morning light. near Padley.
The Wild Wild WoodThis giant tree caught my eye from the bottom of a steep bank along the River Derwent near Hathersage. I made my way up the muddy bank to spend some time around it's base and among the local squirrels.
Guard of HonourAutumn colours from the ground at Bole Hill Quarry near Hathersage. This place has seen many changes and shows them all off through it's own display of beauty.
Shadow WoodsThe closest I have been to a mystical magical world. I feel I could have stepped further and been taken away forever into another time & place.
Terrible LoveBole Hill woodland from behind the spider webs and birch leaves.
Theatre of ImaginationFew landscapes create such intense atmosphere and intrigue as the woodland around the old quarry of Bole Hill.
LedgesI always try to retrace my steps to this location and end up getting lost.
Rising TowerThe Tower, Alport Castles, The Peak District. Another landslide site in the Peak District, they certainly make for the most interesting sites to see and feel the power of the natural forces at work here.
PitchforkWoodland at Bole Hill Quarry draped in cobwebs and mist. I don't even know how to begin to try and translate this scene into words that convey it's atmosphere.
Sweeping MistsMillstone Edge serrates through the morning mist in autumn creating layers into the distance.
SurveyanceA location open to interpretation .
The Longest EdgeI visit Stanage Edge quite often but have always struggled to get images which convey the length of this millstone grit edge as it snakes it's way above Hathersage. This is my best attempt yet and was a quick capture as I saw the clouds casting long moving contrasts across the moorland adding depth to the image.
Cold DanceThere are few better sights for the eyes than the combination of frost and mist all around.
Win HillWin Hill shrouded in a thin veil of mist as the sunrise unfolds around it and clouds move quickly across the sky. You can alwasy find me near this hill.
Relative TranquilityAn old barn sits on top of the landslip farmland of Hagg Side in the golden evening light.
Morning Above The CloudsA sheep awakens from rest above the cloud inversion in the Hope Valley during a beautiful autumnal sunrise. An image which brings a sense of familar calm.
Winnats PassWinnats Pass typically marks the end of any cloud inversion in the Hope Valley. The steep sides of the collapsed cave hold back the tide of the mist, locking it deep in the valley below.
Sweeps and FoldsCallow sits in a valley between Stanage Edge and Hathersage and today has only a few buildings including a converted barn holiday cottage. A golden sunset in February accentuates the sweeps and folds of this farmland landscape.
