Mam Tor Sunset Pt 1

Mam Tor Sunset Pt One

Hi all


Had a great weekend, got soaked on Saturday playing about with the caravan while still trying to cope with just having 3 cortisone injections in my shoulder…long story, anyway its feeling better today thank God. But yesterday me Jo and Stormy headed down to Castleton and Mam Tor. We arrived quite early and were greeted by Para Gliders and Hang Gliders buzzing all around, close up and real close up shots to follow, I was in my element.


Was quite busy with lots of tourist at that time and I must say quite a few were irresponsible dog owners and litter louts.  “My Soap Box Bit”, if your going to a place that’s ranked high in the world of beautiful locations then please please keep your dog on a lead, clean up after it and for Gods sake take your rubbish home with you, Storm has a passion for cigarette ends, tissue and chewing gum,”not from me may I add”  as you can imaging she loved it, I have made a promise to myself that the next person I see litter, let their pooch foul or spit chewing gum are going to have their faces rubbed in it! . Would make for an interesting court case don’t you think.


Anyway as the weekend warriors left we remained, we three only and were rewarded with this most beautiful of sunsets, I have 3 parts to this which I’ll upload later, you can view these now HERE, you can also buy the prints there too.


We arrived at 3:30 pm and left 6:15 pm by which stage we were freezing and Stormy was getting restless chewing her lead, she soon got fed up of watching the gliding men in their amazing machines buzzing overhead and irresponsible dog owners letting their dogs run free over the Tor. We headed home and had a hot late from McDonalds, Stormy had her chews which she loves.

Very content and feeling the warmth return to our numb fingers I knew I had some special shots that only I could have taken as I was the only person there with a camera in the whole world, very humbling really.


Back out this week on another adventure with Stormy

    Really nice mate, best one of the 3. What is that chimney? just a plaque ? I know it used to be a fort of some sort. I know where your coming from with the litter louts though..shame. The ones i like are the folk who know your getting your comp together, and THEY know they are in the way, and so just stand there looking your direction.And when you pick up the tripod to move off, so do they ! why is that ?
