Mam Tor, Castleton

Sheep! // 22 01 2022

Today we went for a walk up to Mam Tor, which is in Castleton in the Peak District. It was super windy up there, and the air had a bite in it, but otherwise it was a pleasant walk about.

There were loads of people out and about. And a lot of sheep too!

Misty Mornings

Misty Mornings // 15 01 2022

In the dark winter months I struggle to wake up, as I’m sure many other do. When it’s spring/summer/autumn I tend to wake up naturally around 7:30-8, but in winter I’m pushing for a 9am wake up. I’m going to assume that it’s to do with the lack of light – sunrise this morning was at 8:15am.

After two failed wind turbine photoshoots I decided that I wanted to get up and go shoot this morning. The weather forecast looked OK for the morning. It changed from clear, to misty, to cloudy in the days before, and as I went to bed last night it said it was going to be cloudy.

Knowing that the forecast isn’t always right (whilst praying for mist or intermittent clouds) I decided to set my alarm and get out there.
I was rewarded hen I woke up with a nice misty view out of the window. I hastily got dressed (red dress tucked into gym leggings, with wellies on the bottom is a killer combo) and headed out.

It’s been a long time since I’ve gotten up and gone for a sunrise photo – Covid put a stop to most holidays! What I wasn’t anticipating was how many dog walkers there would be. Silly of me really, and I got a few funny looks prancing around in a bright red dress bare foot whilst there was frost on the floor.

Alone

None the less it was a morning well spent I think!

Grass : )

Spray Carnation // 13 01 2022

I woke up this morning and there was a nice sunset coming up; so I grabbed by camera and my 500mm zoom lens an set up on my chest of drawers. Unfortunately in my excitement / rush to get out of the house for work on time I didn’t really check the photos.

I got home excited to edit them, but they weren’t quite in focus 😦 So here we have another flower. Hopefully the weather over the weekend will be OK so I can get out and shoot something different!
