I took the opportunity to head out in to a misty Peak District at the start of this week.  I started up on the beautiful Curbar Edge, with mist filling the Derwent Valley below and sky to the East looking like it was on fire with the oranges that were in the clouds and on the horizon (more of that in a later post).  After that I headed over to the Chatsworth Estate to have ago at a shot that I’ve had in mind for quite sometime, but after hanging around for over an hour (and doing some conference calls) the mist hadn’t lifted sufficiently for the shot I had in my head.

Following that I thought I would nosey over to Padley Gorge (aka Padleygeddon) to see what was happening with the colours that many flock to photograph.  With it being October I was surprised to find that it was still very green – in an unsaturated way – with very little in the way of Autumnal colour at all.  Not put off by that I hung around for a good 3 hours (and did another conference call!) taking photographs of the place and exploring.
