Derwent Edge, near Whinstone Lee Tor

I wanted a peace and tranquillity shoot last Saturday as well as visiting somewhere less visited. So I headed up the lungbusting climb from Ladybower Inn to Derwent Edge, stopping just before Whinstone Lee Tor.


I chose to go out Saturday because it seemed a guaranteed sunset even if not spectacular would unfold. However, a persistant hazy bank of cloud looked to put end to that.


Just as I was giving up hope as you do, though thankful to be out the sun broke through the smallest of gaps between the clouds and Kinder Scout illuminating the landscape in a glorious golden glow. The composition isn't quite spot on, I was aware at the time but any more to the left and the sun was included.
