I started off the day wanting to shoot the hot air balloon lift at Chatsworth looking down on it from the very edge of Baslow Edge in the Peak District, but I also wanted to catch a bit of pre-dawn light over the Peak District first of all. In the end the balloon lift was a bit of a damp squib thanks to the wind as only one balloon took off on the last morning, and was skilfully kept in the relative shelter of Derwent Valley. But the day was not wasted as there was some lovely initial light on Curbar Edge and as always its good to get out.
Here I quite liked the leading line of the grasses that ended in the small clump of heather that was still half in bloom.
