Landscape Photographer of the Year 2016

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 in the Peak District

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.

Snow in the Peak District

As I watch the Weather Forecast on a cold January evening at home and as my daughter sings a rendition of “White Christmas”   I’m dreaming of a white February!!   It seems that the wintry white season that I remember as a child at Christmas has moved to late January this year.
