Chasing light in Edale

Chasing nice light is one my favourite photographic pastimes. Thick cloud hung over the hills on this particular morning in Edale but the sun was determined to make an appearance. It all started a shimmer of light which faded as quickly as it appeared. I looked up at the sky and thought, “that might be the only sun we see today”.

Fortunately for us, the sun shone through just as we reached higher ground. It was the sort of situation where you just had to point and shoot because if you took too long, it was gone!

I love the warm light against the cold sky. I haven’t edited these colours — you are seeing the landscape exactly as I saw it.

The Edale area (in the Peak District) is absolutely stunning. Find me a stone house with a garden big enough to grow some veggies and I’ll move tomorrow!
