2015 didn’t see me venture out with my camera very often, I looked over my archives and counted less than 10 times this “Life” malarkey can be testing at times and its always hard trying to find the right balance, however life for me changed in October as I handed in my notice at work which gave me the chance to spend more time with my family and get out with the camera. I have decided to share my personal best images from 2015 something which I first did back in 2014 for the Best Images of 2013 I didn’t manage to do 2014 as I was working away! so im picking up from where I left off I guess!
It was tricky picking the “Best Landscape Images of 2015” as there are rather a few I really like, but here goes I’m going to keep it simple and post the best 5 images from various locations, I hope you enjoy them!
5th Place – Moody Roaches, Peak District National Park
I intentionally went to shoot this scene, something I don’t do normally!! The weather had been a little drab for a few days and I remembered this dead wood Under The Roaches so I thought I would go and have a closer look. I also wrote a quick blog as I came away with some nice images.
4th Place – Parkamoor Jetty, Lake District National Park
Living 3 hours from the Lake District means its not a simple jump in the car, trips have to be planned in advanced for me, I was fortunate on this occasion as I was working near by and called in here on the way home. The weather wasn’t great so I opted for a long expose and it came out really nice.
3rd Place – Stepping Stones at Dovedale, Peak District National Park
I had wanted to capture this scene for some time, The stepping stones at Dovedale are an iconic location and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Peak District. I have visited on numerous occasions for me this image is the best possible scene to portray its beauty.
2nd Place – Dove Valley, Peak District National Park
A shot from October 2015 pre-dawn from the top of Chrome Hill looking down the Dove Valley, the mist clinging to the River Dove.
1st Place – Wetton Village, Staffordshire, Peak District National Park
A small village in the White Peak District (Southern Region) and only a short drive from home for me, I have explored this region a lot recently looking for good vantage points and places to of interest to visit. I arrived early on the 1st November and couldn’t believe my look when I watched the mist rolling out from Manifold Valley behind Wetton Village and on wards to the village of Alstonfield. Little did I know but this was to be the only great weather we had for Autumn 2015.
