An image from July last year (but not developed until a couple of weeks ago).

Marple Junction is where the Peak Forest Canal and Macclesfield Canal meet and is an excellent location for a spot of ‘gongoozling’.

Digitised using Nikon D5600 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8 and Nikon ES-2 Film Digitising Adapter with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

An image from a recent ‘Photography Friday’ jaunt with my regular partner-in-crime, Rachel to Derby Arboretum, Britain’s first public park.

Joseph Strutt commissioned and donated the park for the benefit of citizens of Derby in 1840. The intention was a botanical tree garden for instruction as well as leisure. Sadly it was neglected for many years and even now is a little known and somewhat unappreciated spot in the city…
