Photographer's Note

Taken a couple of days ago on Stanage Edge in Derbyshire. This was my first visit to the Peak District National Park. As I was up there on business I didnt get to see anywhere other than a couple of brief visits to Stanage Edge. But what a fantastic location.

It had been extremely foggy all day. I was initially dismayed as I wanted to catch a great sunset from the top of the rocky outcrop. But as I drove towards it the fog kept visibility really poor and so gave me little chance of any good light. But I decided to perservere and to my surprise the fog actually makes this image. It simplifies the background, accentuates the colour in the sky, weakens the sun sufficiently so I could photograph directly into it and gives the shot a sense of mystery. A valuable lesson learned for me there!

There seems to be a wealth of opportunity for the photographer here. I hope to return soon.
