As part of my holiday time I like to get out and about. Mam Tor has been on my To Do list for some time, but it’s never been at the top of the list because it’s almost an hour away. Not that far I know but it’s far enough at a 2 hour round trip, plus a walk when you’ve got gammy legs
As kB has two weeks off as well I decided that we should go on a couple of walks. Makes you appreciate eating warm, yummy food more if you’ve been out hiking!
The day was pretty nice, but the further out we got into the Peak District, the hazier it was. I also realised that my beloved 18-35mm had gotten stuck at a wide aperture (It capsized into a rock pool a year and a half ago, so it’s managed quite well since then really!)
I didn’t think I’d end up with much in terms of photos, but I used the Dehaze tool in Lightroom for the first time and I’ve been suitably impressed by it.
We set off early (because in the UK the clocks went back last night, meaning that when we got up at 8 our bodies thought it was 9) and when we got there there was plenty of parking.
It was miserable all day. I did wonder if the mist would burn off and the clouds might get more interesting, but no. It stayed grey and misty all day.
Back to work blues has set in, and I’ve had a headache both evenings when I’ve gotten in. Today it was particularly bad and this abstract shot was all I could manage
This afternoon (late afternoon!) we went for a little walk – just for an hour or so. We went to Eckington Woods and it was lovely and warm, but there was a definite coolness in the air. The light was lovely ^_^ and some leaves have started to turn, but most of them are still green… for now!
