Derwent Edge, the Peak District, April 2019 🇬🇧 — — Let me just start by saying I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend and enjoyed the sun as much as I did - let’s hope this four day week goes as quickly as the four day weekend seemed to... 😴 — — Considering how close I have lived to the Peak District National Park for a large portion of my life, I really haven’t spent enough time there - Friday marked my first time up on Derwent Edge and it did not disappoint... — — The walk along the Edge is marked with lots of unusually-shaped Tors, with names like Cakes of Bread and the Salt Cellar - and of course, there’s a beautiful view down into the valley and over to Ladybower and Derwent Reservoirs. — — Overall we walked for around five hours and covered around eight miles - with a fair few stops for food (and of course photos) it was a gentle and very pleasant walk on a hot and sunny day, perfect for a Good Friday adventure, right? — — #igersderbyshire #peakdistrict #WeAreDerbyshire #landscapephotography #getoutside #ladieswhohike #ukscenery #peakdistrictphotography #explorebritain #peakscollective #derbyshire #ig_peakdistrict #visitpeakdistrict #discoverderbyshire #letsgopeakdistrict #lensbible #instagood #hikersofinstagram #darlingescapes #instagood #uk_shots #ukshots #landscape #ordanancesurvey #country_features #igersuk #hikersofinstagram #modernoutdoors #trulyamazingplaces #visitengland@peakdistrictnt @peak.district @peakdistrictnationalpark @peakdistrictlove @ig_peakdistrict at Derwent Edge

Win Hill Tap More... Last Week I visited a place called Win Hill in the Peak District, this if you have seen it almost looks like a volcano from lower perspectives. Taking the route up to Win Hill from Ladybower approach it's quite a narrow and steep path which sometimes is scramble worthy, finally getting to the top after this steep route you are provided a Vista standpoint of 360° views of all around the Peak District, both the dark and light peaks joining together. As the main aim was trying to get sunset here and quite recently it's been extremely hazy making it really difficult for the sun to catch those high altitude clouds and adding to the disappointment a huge bank of cloud engulfed the sunlight pretty much as it was setting so sadly there was none of that golden light catching other locations, but that's photography at the end of the day and it comes with a lot of patience and perseverance so I'd love to get up here again when the sunset actually works out. This picture above is just a Capture of the landscape looking towards Mam Tor and Lose Hill, getting the ok light before it was unfortunately choked out by the clouds and Haze. .

After the loss of its industries in the later 20th century, Eyam’s local economy now relies on the tourist trade and it is promoted as "the plague village", in reference to how it chose to isolate itself after bubonic plague was discovered there, so as to prevent the infection spreading. ~ The history of the plague in the village began in 1665 when a flea-infested bundle of cloth arrived from London for the local tailor. Within a week his assistant George Vicars was dead and more began dying in the household soon after. As the disease spread, the villagers turned for leadership to their rector, the Reverend William Mompesson, and the Puritan Minister Thomas Stanley. These introduced a number of precautions to slow the spread of the illness from May 1666. ~ The plague ran its course over 14 months and one account states that it killed at least 260 villagers, with only 83 surviving out of a population of 350.

"I believe that each person has a favorite place, a tree, a mountain, or a beach which they want to come back to, even if the return can only take place in the boundaries of their imagination. Sana Szewczyk Visit often whether it's in the mind or in real time! #peopleofthepeak #mamtor at Mam Tor

"Wherever you go leave a trail of light. Susan Rohrer I've took this shot loads of times but it's still always fun to do! I waited a while for the light to drop enough and for some cars to come. It's always exciting seeing what happens during a long exposure. A small detail but somebody walked past to the left with a head torch on and glanced over at me then carried on. It was enough for the little burst of light that just finishes the trail off! The Serpentine will always be a classic and I don't think I'll ever get bored of Photographing it! On a side note I hope the person being treated in the ambulance at Winnats Pass tonight is ok. Got stuck in a traffic jam in the middle of the Pass and didn't look good! Take care out there guys! #mamtor at Mam Tor
