Where has January gone! Ive no idea… its gone that fast its February already and its time I wrote a quick article from my First Landscape Photography of 2017. Ive been lucky the last 2 years picking great weather conditions to head out for my first shoot and 2017 was no different.
Over the moon to announce that one of my images received the award of “Highly Commended” in the Take a View – Landscape Photographer of the Year 2016 awards. I submitted several images and out of those several images one image got shortlisted. I was extremely pleased to get that far to be honest as this was my first ever competition I had entered.
Chrome Hill along with Parkhouse, Hollins and High Wheeldon are the oldest exposed sedimentary limestone rock formations in the Peak District National Park formed over 300 million years ago and deposited over a period of about 20 million years into a shallow tropical sea.
Stanage Edge is located in the Dark Peak of the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire, If you look at its location in relation to the Peak District on a map its just slightly North of the center mass, making it an extremely easy to access location for many, with it being just 25 miles from the center of Sheffield you can see why it gets so many visitors year round with stunning views dominating the high ground the edge can be seen for miles away and its a place where I have personally only been a hand full of times as I tend to stay in the White Peak or the South West Peak as it is over an hours drive from home for me.
