Peak District Shots



Click here for all 33 photos


I was on a day off from work so tried to get some sunrise shots in the Peak District. It was very cloudy and overcast and the sunrise was a non event :o) Still managed a few shots and found a new waterfall that I didn't know existed. The shrine was also a interesting find, its for a Miss Dolores. Apparently she was a member of the Spanish nobility who came over to teach the children of the Grimshaw family who lived in the nearby Erwood Hall. Miss Dolores died in 1889 & this shrine was erected in her memory.

Taken a few weeks ago, from the bridge over the Churnet Valley Steam railway at Froghall station. It was a 3 shot HDR but as the train was black I thought it would look good as a B&W.
