The sun sets at 7PM now, getting to locations straight from work is becoming almost impossible! Luckily this location, Crowdcote (location number 38) can be shot a very short distance from the road side. We still only had about 15 minutes to get what we needed, it was...

Froggatt Edge is in the Baslow area of the Peak District, it's a gritstone rock location that is popular with climbers and bolderers. We didn't know until we got there but there are also a number of wild deer in the area, something we will remember next time and take s...

There are quite a few waterfalls in James Grant's Peak District Through the Lens (our guidebook), some of which are quite challenging to get to. This particular waterfall is called Swallet Falls and although it's almost a roadside location, it's completely hidden and u...

There are two locations left that have Tracy and I worried and both of them are at Kinder Scout. Kinder Scout is the highest mountain in the Peak District at 636m, not only is it very high up, but it is vast at the top. In fact, it's so vast that it's actually classed...

I could have started nearly every single blog post from the last 10 days with "the weather was overcast", it's less than ideal but we have to work with what we are given. High Wheeldon is location number 37 in the book, it's in the Buxton area so only 30 minutes or so...

We both finished work late, it was time to tackle Blake Mere. This is location number 72 in the book and is the closest one to home, in fact, it's only a 25 minute drive. It's not the most interesting place to look at but it does have some very interesting history. It'...

Winster barn is location number 54 in Peak District - Through the lens, it's in the Matlock area, the viewpoint is only a very short walk from the car park (thankfully). The weather was a bit mixed, it was extremely windy, quite cold and threatening rain. As we got to...

The weekends are our greatest asset for time, we simply cannot waste them. In fact, over half the locations we have left to do MUST be completed at the weekend because of either travel time or because they feature waterfalls and brooks (these get shot in normal dayligh...

The weather had been very mixed all day, it went from throwing it down, to overcast, to sunny and then back to overcast. Burbage rocks is location number 12 in our guide book (Peak District - Through the lens) and I think we may have missed a trick. In hindsight we sho...

Padley Gorge is a place I had heard of but had never visited, it's a mixture of forests and brooks. We didn't have a huge amount of time to explore the area which was a shame because it seemed to offer so much. My initial planning was around the brooks and water featur...

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.
