Wintery Walk On Stanage

Last weekend i had the chance to head out to the Peak District for a bit of a walk in the snow. As some of the roads were impassable for the average car we decided to meet in Hathersage.
We took a steady walk over fields and a couple of roads until turning off onto the old pack horse trail that leads up to Stanage Edge. As there was a very strong cold wind blowing we had lunch by a small copse of trees that gave us shelter. As the sun had come out it made for a very pleasant lunch break.
We followed the trail onto the top of Stanage. The wind was strong and the snow often knee deep. With the sun out and the wind behind us it wasn’t as cold as we’d expected.
We followed the edge to the end and dropped down to the northern end of Burbage, then turned right along the road. We had planned on taking a path to cut back down to Hathersage, but the deep snow would have been thigh deep in places so we followed the road until we found a more accessible path. From there we passed through a farm and then down a track back into Hathersage.
It’s not the longest of walks any of us have done, but it was hard going at times in the knee deep snow. All in all it was a good day out in lovely countryside with good people.







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.
