Rocks and Mist

One to accompany yesterdays shot, same shoot up on Higger Tor in The Peaks, freezing cold with a mist inversion cloaking the valley and trees below while the sun tried its best to burn through.

    Hello Adrian,
    In which part of the Peak District is Higger Tor ? It reminds me of The Roaches.
    We’ve got very ‘British’ weather here today, looking out of the office to very grey, wet , misty hillsand hearing that lovely pitter patter on the windows…very refreshing 🙂

    Hi Alison

    its around the Hathersage area, its fairly remote which is the main attraction plus its a dead easy climb from the car park, me and Stormy go there once a week or if I need a bit of fresh air….talking of which I have just been all along the Dearne River with Stormy , wellies on ankle deep in mud. rain is nice but you can have too much of it you know, were getting that way now

    hope you are well

    all the best

    Ah I see. You probably wouldn’t get any shot at all in The Roaches in which there wasn’t a novice rock climber or a couple of town folks out for a stroll …too near the city really.
    I envy you being able to be out and about in the fresh air in the morning with Stormy…and as for the weather, as they say, the grass is always greener on the other side (which actually it is because my lawn is just not looking healthy at all at the moment)

      well I bet you get your share of stunning scenery there too, like you say grass is always greener, it never really is though, and the way England is run I envy you now

      all the best

      ps did you check out my Peaks video

    No I didn’t….I’ll take a look when I’m away from the office so that I can appreciate it more … I feel a bit guilty looking at Twitter, Facebook and personal stuff at work …even though I’m my own boss.
    I’ll get back to you on it.

    • Adrian February 17, 2011 at 4:21 PM #

      well if you cant cheat a little when you are your own boss…lol know what you mean as i work from home and dont leave my office, you have to be disciplined dont you

    …at least your use of these networks is justifiable ,as it must be a pretty useful tool for promoting your work.
    So anyway, I managed to take a look at your videos yesterday evening and enjoyed them very much. I find the water shots very unusual how do you manage to create that ‘watercolour effect ‘ ? You made a good choice of soundtracks too. I sent the link to some of my friends who also know the area and they agreed that the photos are stunning.
    Going back to what you saying about how the UK is being run, I do think I am actually better off here. When I get back in the summer to see my folks, I see and hear things that make my hair stand on end! Here in Spain we’ve also got our unemployment and economic problems too, but in general I think society is far safer and ‘healthier’ here. I’ve got two teenage children and I’m so thankful that
    they’re growing up here instead of Britain.
    So, although I miss certain things about the UK I certainly wouldn’t move back there…not for the time being anyway.

    Well it’s Friday at last and the sun’s out again..a full weekend ahead. Will you be heading off to somewhere ‘exotic´ with your flask of Bovril to do a shoot ? Wherever you go I hope it turns out to be rewarding.
    Have a good weekend

      Thanks Alison for the kind words, agree about all you said about UK, we actually love Anglesey, that’s where I want to be one day taking out tours of photographers, the sea will always be my 1st love, I have to go every few weeks and stand in it feeling the breeze, ahhh need it
      The sea colours are already there i dont add anything other that I use filters then enhance them, I dont blend shots or do HDR its always one shot with different filters on then I process them can take hours or a few mins depends on what Im trying to put across with the image. Gotta dash its big gym training session in and hour and i need to take Stormy out for a trot first, will catch up with you on Monday, have a great weekend.
