Sunset from Higger Tor

A brief interlude from the water vole images!

 

This was taken a few weeks ago on a trip to the Peak District to photograph red grouse. We were stalking a few birds around Higger Tor as the sun was going down and at one point I turned around and saw this view and just had to try an capture it.

 

I was shooting with a 300mm f/4 + 1.4x TC (so 630 mm effective focal length on a crop sensor) so capturing any other than a close crop of the landscape was not an option. Therefore, I captured about 9 or so images to make a panorama, from which this is my preferred crop (the uncropped panorama was approx 120 MP!).

 

Not sure what the hill that forms the subject is, maybe any Peak District dwellers out there could help? This was looking west-southwest from the given tagged location. Also, that isn't sky behind the hill but a taller ridge that I didn't capture the top of.
