A Short Walk

On a recent Sunday, an old friend i hadn’t seen for a while suddenly sent a text asking if i was free to meet up and maybe go for a walk. As i had to walk the dog i said we could drive out somewhere. So the afternoon was spent walking along Stanage Edge and back in the Peak District National Park.
The sun shone most of the afternoon, just as it looked like we’d have a great sunset, a few clouds came over. This couldn’t detract from what was a classic, and slightly chilly, early winter afternoon walk.


Looking up at Stanage from part way along the edge.

Although the cloud came over to hide the sun as it set, it gave us a lovely light, and emhasised the late afternoon hazy mist.

About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.

      Thanks John. The area is beautiful, and the low winter sun gave stunning light. It was almost impossible to take a bad photo….
