It's difficult enough to predict the weather in this country but even more so in elevated areas like Castleton. Mam Tor, located near to Castleton, is one of the most iconic areas of the Peak District, it attracts hundreds of hikers, walkers and explorers every weekend...

I'm worried. I'm worried that the biggest obstacle with this 73in73 challenge is something that is completely out of our control and that's the weather. Usually with landscape photography you spend time scouting a location, visit it a few times and then, when the time...

We decided to visit part of the Cheshire Peak for todays location, specifically, Shining Tor which is location number 66 in the book. It was a bit of a walk but it was mostly on a path so not too strenuous. It seemed like a nice evening so we took our two Pomeranian do...

After the craziness of yesterdays escapades at The Trinnacle we didn't have it in us to travel or walk far so we ticked off one of the local locations. The Roaches is only a 20 minute drive from home and this particular part of The Roaches, Ramshaw Rocks, is only a few...

Saddleworth is one of the furthest commutes for us to get to, we are trying to get these difficult locations completed sooner rather than later as we are constantly racing against the time of the sunset. The sun sets earlier and earlier every night and by the time we h...

Two for the price of one this time! We didn't get home until after 3am but it was worth it. The forecast was clear sky's between midnight at 2am and most importantly there was no moon in the sky. I did a bit of planning on Google Maps and it looked like we might just b...

I won't lie, we are a bit behind schedule already, it's been none stop since we started! Bamford Edge was our next stop, just near to Ladybower Reservoir in the Peak. The car journey there was extremely frustrating as there seemed to be an infinite number of learner dr...

We had been keeping a close eye on the weather forecast all through the night, it was changing constantly. We decided to set the alarm for just after 3am and if the conditions looked promising then we would head out for sunrise. The alarm went off, I checked the foreca...

We realised something today, this is going to be a lot more difficult than we had thought! The weather somewhat let us down, a common occurrence I fear, sunrise and sunset were a no-go. We settled for Fair Brook at Kinder Scout, one of the few locations good for an ove...

Tomorrow is the big day! The start of our epic challenge! The weather this week has been amazing for photography and tomorrows forecast is... rain all day long with lots of cloud and wind :/ This is not the weather we were hoping for! We have a rough plan for which loc...

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.
