A gorgeous sunny afternoon in the Peak District

Some photos taken this afternoon while walking in the Longshaw Estate above Hathersage. The temperature was about 2°C at the time but it was a splendid afternoon for a walk. The lying snow is above about 500metres on Howden Moors.

Larger versions of the photos can be found at

Wonderful winter sunshine in Tideswell

A few photos taken in the marvellous sunny weather we have had around Tideswell today. Mind you, with the temperature around 2-3C at the time the photos were taken it wasn’t a day for hanging about. Perfect for a good walk, though.

A fine morning in Tideswell

After several days of unrelenting gloom, mist and drizzle Monday has got off to a much better start. With the temperature around 6 deg and good breaks in the cloud it’s a much more pleasant version of autumn. Looking forward to the cooler and fresher weather later in the week.
