Our Challenge

We are aiming to take 73 landscape photographs in 73 locations across the Peak District in just 73 days. Whenever we are in the Peak we take a fantastic book called 'Through the lens' by James Grant with us. His book marks 73 locations across the Peak which offer potential for beautiful landscape photos.

 

Please see the About page to find out why we are doing this and which charities we are supporting. 

The challenge is sponsorship driven so please please Donate anything you can. The best photos will be printed and exhibited at a local venue after the end of the 73 days (more on that later). Any sales of prints will be added to funds raised.

The 73in73 Exhibition

It's been a long road but finally we can announce the details of the 73in73 exhibition! The best of the prints from our landscape challenge will be displayed for 6 weeks at a local cafe in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent. We will be kicking it all off with an opening night, Tracy and I will be at the venue all evening where there will be opportunity to purchase prints, all the money of which will be added to the funds already donated. This is also where people can come and pickup the prints that they have pre-ordered. To pre-order a print go to this Flickr Album and have a look at the prints on offer. If you see one you like please either email us at jason@73in73.com or go to our Facebook page and

What an amazing ending to 73in73!!

73 landscape photos, 73 locations, 73 days. That was the challenge and we have done it! We wanted to spend the evening at one of our favourite and most local locations; The Roaches. It was close enough to get to after work before sunset but more importantly, it's one of the places that led us to falling in love with the Peak District. Our intentions were to take no landscape photos, but to reflect on the last 73 days. It was cold, grey and very windy. After half an hour or so we took a couple of quick selfies for this blog post and did a quick video, we started to pack up our things when something incredible and completely unexpected happened... The sky started to change, it went from grey t

The 73rd day, so close!

Today is 3rd October 2017, once we roll into 4th October it will all be done! Let's not get ahead of ourselves, we have two locations to post today! We visited Lumsdale falls (location number 56) and Black Rocks (location number 58) in some very changeable weather conditions! It had forecast to be cloudy but dry, ideal weather for photographing waterfalls but not exactly what we wanted for our final sunset of the challenge. Oh well, if there is one thing we have learnt on this mad journey it's that the weather couldn't care less :D First up was Lumsdale. Neither of us had been here before although we had some some rather gorgeous photos from this location on the Internet and in James' book.

The big one! Kinder Downfall.

Kinder Scout is the tallest mountain in the Peak District, at the summit is a very flat and bleak expanse. The moorland is made of peat and can be extremely boggy in places, it stretches for miles and miles and is very easy to get lost on. The top of Kinder is home to Derbyshire's highest waterfall, Kinder Downfall. At 30 meters it's a significant sight and was the main viewpoint we wanted to get to for location number 31. The day got off to a terrible start! The original plan was to photograph Kinder Downfall around sunset, unfortunately the forecast for the day was overcast and rain. There was no advantage at all in waiting until sunset and then having to walk back in the dark, it was alre

2 easy access locations in 1 morning

It's been a week of overcast weather, especially at sunset, so we decided to have a shot at some early morning locations. Out of the remaining locations we had 2 left that were more or less roadside shots. The first one was at a place called Arbor Low in Bakewell. Arbor Low is a neolithic henge monument which consists of around 50 slabs of limestone. It's actually a fairly interesting place, certainly historically. The weather forecast for the morning was promising, only a small amount of cloud was predicted. In fact, the weather in Leek was quite decent, it looked like we could be on for a good morning. Spoke too soon! As the car pulled into the small car park, the cloud had rolled in and c
