Early Autumn Explorations

I haven't been able to get out with the sole intent of "doing" photography for a good six months (probably more).  I needed to get out and decompress - and I think I achieved that on Friday.  Sat up on Curbar Edge in the Peak District looking down the...

Barrea, Abruzzo, Italy
