Up on the moors above Howden Reservoir in the Peak Distric my friend and I met this grouse doing its best not to be photographed. After a bit of stalking I managed to capture it, on film, of course. The red eyebrows are clear, but not the white woolley leggings.
I haven’t been posting lately, life gets in the way sometimes, so the camera has been pretty much mothballed. This shot, of an early morning start to a hike in Derbyshire’s Peak District three weeks ago, was taken with my phone camera. It turned out far better than I had expected it to. The fog and mist, which was very widespread, soon melted away to leave a clear, crisp autumn day, perfect for a walk.
These are the Hurkling Stones, a prominent outcrop on the top of Derwent Edge in the Peak District (Derbyshire). Although the photograph is taken on a dull day the contours of the weathered stones are very clear.
And we found this large caterpillar was sheltering from the wind on the stones!
