Here are a few images from the beautiful Peak District National Park. I've been there a couple of times, to attend courses run by the Peak District Photography Centre.
This image was a bit of a fluke, capturing the cloud shadow moving rapidly over the field and tree patterns I was actually interested in. The shadow creates a sense of movement and some drama to an otherwise quite interesting scene.
I have adjusted the levels on this one, to accentuate the shadow slightly, but not much. This was taken about 1 hour before the biggest thunder and lightening storm I've seen for ages, and the sky gives a clue to what's coming...
Peak District Tree
This image was taken near The Roaches, which is a well-known local geological landmark. The tree stands alone on high ground, allowing it to be nicely isolated using a mid-range telephoto setting, and works well with the gently curving shape of the stone wall in the foreground.
All comments welcome.
