An image from one of my last ‘pre-lockdown’ photographic forays…

Redhill Quarry, near Middleton in the Derbyshire Dales is now a nature reserve and picnic area and I had the place to myself on the bleak January day that I chose to visit (I was ‘social distancing’ before it was a necessity).

I can’t help feeling that the isolated picnic table has far more meaning now than when I photographed it…
