The Castle, Alport Castles, Peak District, UK.


First time I've visited this awe inspiring, jaw dropping vista of a landslip. Why did I wait until now? I've been pretty close while cycling, but as it's only accessed by a footpath I've never been. The Peak District's very own 'Old Man of Storr'. More should be made of this place; it's stunning. I had no right taking pictures of it at two in the afternoon. I'll go back when the light's better to do it justice.


This place cries out to be processed in black and white. I think I will. I thought I'd go for a panorama first as that's how I first saw it. This is three shots stitched.
