What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Ten years ago it was a footbridge over Burbage Brook in Yarncliffe Wood in the Peak District, in an area better known as Padley Gorge.

I’ve not been up there in a while, it’s a beautiful spot but incredibly difficult to get to yourself!

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Three years ago it was North Lane near Belper in Derbyshire, part of an ancient route known as ‘The Portway’ that was used by the Romans to transport lead from mines in north Derbyshire to the fort at Derventio Coritanorum (now the Little Chester area of Derby).

Monochrome Monday… Undercliffe Walk, Saltdean

Undercliffe Walk, SaltdeanUndercliffe Walk, Saltdean, July 2020
Nikon F3HP, NIKKOR 35mm f/2 Ai-S + O56 orange filter, 1/125s, f11 – Ilford Delta 400 Professional rated at ISO 320
Developed in Ilford DDX at 1:4, 8 mins at 20°c.

An image from a roll of film that had escaped the developing queue somehow… from our one trip south to visit the Godsons last year.

The Undercliffe Walk at Saltdean, east of Brighton, is a very pleasant spot for a Sunday morning stroll even if I did make life more difficult for myself by making the already heavy Nikon F3HP even heavier with the MD-4 motordrive I’d picked up the day before from Park Cameras in Burgess Hill!

Digitised using Nikon D5500 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8, pixl-latr and Negative Lab Pro plugin with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.
