An image from a recent ‘Photography Friday’ walk with Rachel along the banks of the River Derwent near Calver in the Peak District.

This is the point at which Stoke Brook flows into the river, home to Brook Lampreys, a primitive, eel-like fish with a sucker for a mouth… We didn’t see any though.

Here’s hoping that our jaunts (and the world in general) return to normal soon…

Bargain books!

As an old friend of my wife’s used to say ‘money is never wasted on books or pork products’

I picked these three up on Sunday from a shop at one of the local tourist traps… None were priced and I was pleasantly surprised to be told £15 for the lot!

I’ve a horrible feeling that ‘The Hasselblad Way’ will only aggravate an itch I’ve had for a while to own such a thing…

The first ‘Photography Friday’ trip of 2020 saw Rachel and I visit the Peak District National Park. These Silver Birches (Betula pendula) were captured in an area between Baslow Edge and the Baslow-Sheffield road known as Jack Flat, an area also home to a small herd of Highland cattle!
