The peaceful Peak District

17th August 2011


I may not have tickled the judge's fancy in the Great British Life photography competition, inexplicably they didn't shortlist a single image of mine. There really should be some kind of law against this type of thing happening. But thankfully the editor of Derbyshire Life knows her stuff and has featured the above image in September's edition.

For me, this image can be summed up with one word - bucolic. There is something about the gentle rolling valley and soft light that seems to exude a gentle country charm.

It's a shame that I had to stand perched on the edge of a miniscule ledge whilst lunatics, who for some unknown reason were allowed to drive unsupervised, thundered past at roughly faster than the speed of light itself, passing no more than a nanometre behind my quivering hindquarters.

Still, I managed, in the end, to get safely out of harms way with a few pictures and only minor psychological trauma.
