Autumn in Padley

Padley gorge is a scenic area in the Derbyshire Peak district that has a bountiful supply of photographic opportunities but this area comes alive and into it’s own in the autumn period.  I always love paying this place a visit at this time of year, it offers many woodland compositions and down at Burbage Brook the are many small waterfalls.  The area is very easily accessed from the B6521 next to the National Trust’s Longshaw Estate.  Go early to avoid the crowds though, especially at weekends and public holidays

Landscape photography workshop

Been out on a Landscape Photography Workshop with Doug Chinnery this week.  It was a fantastic day with first class tuition.  WWW.dougchinnery.co.uk A day worth every penny.  It clarified many question I had regarding this avenue of photography and will hopefully improve my work.

The day started early on Owler tor followed by an afternoon in Padley gorge and ended with a sunset shoot on Stannage edge.  The day and the weather conditions were fantastic.

Images from the day will soon be added to my gallery when they are processed but for now here is one from Stannage Edge.
