The Lud's Church Chasm and then on to The Roaches.

An exploration of Lud’s Church. No photography opportunities in this video but it was interesting to explore this part of the Peak District before finding new photographic opportunities at The Roaches…

A muddy adventure at Lud's Church, before moving on to explore The Roaches. It was surprising to see a queue of people but less surprising to encounter the muddy path that proved a little hazardous for some...

Chrome Hill to Lud's Church chasm.

By the end of the first day my hope for a colourful sunset sky was diminishing. Photography can be a game of luck, opportunity and patience, and many times things will not go in your favour. The next day the sun was shining again and a new adventure began, full of promise and more opportunity…

I end my day at Chrome Hill with a few photographs. The next day I'm out for adventure again at Lud's Church, or as it's marked on the OS map - The Chasm!

Chrome Hill & a precarious place for a photo

Today I'm setting out for a weekend of photography in the west of the Peak District. Part One is a visit to the famous Chrome and Parkhouse Hill ancient reef knolls, these are often frequented by landscape photographers looking for the perfect shot. (There will be more episodes coming soon covering Luds Church 'chasm' and The Roaches, a popular rock climbing area).

Church on the water

A visit to Rutland Water, luckily I had some time to capture a few images before other visitors arrived on the scene…

Rutland Water... Just a quick visit today. I will go back in the future to shoot this wonderful landscape some more...

Making use of ND and polarising filters at Rutland Water. The thumbnail images have had differing colour filters applied in post editing and show how different an image can look.
