At Winter’s End, Bolehill Quarry | Landscape Photography from the Peak District, Outer Hebrides and Scotland

Finally spring may be springing, and if that is the case there is going to be an explosion of colour and saturated greeness.  But before it does, I took the opportunity to take my latest acquisition out for the first time to Bolehill Quarry on the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District.

Before Christmas I bought a Zeiss Ikon Nettar, and was quickly taken with the square 6 x 6 format of the photographs I made.  Since then I’ve had a hankering after a Bronica SQa which is the square 6 x 6 predecessor to the Bronica ETRS which is 6×4.5 (and I have).  Then one day I happened to be browsing eBay (as you do) and there it was; a complete kit.  Three days later I was the proud owner of a Bronica SQa with the difficult task of explaining to my wife the latest “must” have purchase.  Anyway, I survived 🙂

I do like Bolehill Quarry in the Derbyshire Peak District, its very handy for me, being 20 mins from my house.  It also provides quite a variety of subjects from quarried rock faces, to young birch through to gnarly oaks.  Soon Bolehill Quarry will be full of vibrant greens, but I do prefer the more muted tone there at Winter’s end.

For more photographs of the Derbyshire Peak District by me, please have a look here. If you’re interested in finding out more about Bolehill Quarry and the surrounding area, have a look at this article in onlandscape.co.uk.
