A Snowy Day

As I’ve mentioned a few times photography is not just a job to me its my passion and I enjoy doing it in my spare time as much as I do for work! One of my favourite aspects of it is going out into the country side and capturing the natural beauty, so when some snow had settled in the local area I had to go and explore.

I visited Attenborough Nature Reserve and it was like a beautiful Winter wonderland, So here’s a few images from my day exploring this stunning scenery. It’s so important that we take time for ourselves and do what we love!

The Snowy Peak District Part Two!

Snow Upon The Peak District 

The Second hike in the Peak District was on a snowy day, were we tackled Kinder Scout and what a hike it was! We Scrambled up some Rocks to the top which was an adventure in itself, once at the top the views where beautiful seeing the snow meet the hills.

On this hike I only managed to get my Canon G9X point and shoot out due to the extreme cold weather my hands where frozen for every shot but it was worth it!

While at the top the weather decide to take a turn for the worse with 60mph winds and snow blowing our way, it was tricky for me to stay up right and I had plenty of falls to follow, But even with all this weather, we had an amazing time and an adventure I will remember. 

Did I mention how stunning the views where from the top, take a look below!

The Beautiful Peak District Part One!

Part one of the Peaks!

Last weekend I had a great trip out to the Peak District with my Partner and some friends we stayed in a rural cottage on a farm and spent the days hiking! 

Our first hike was to Stanage Edge a fun little hike with lovely weather, I took my Canon 550D on this hike as its my lightest DSLR, so not to heavy to carry around, and I had my Canon 24mm-70mm lens, which was a little heavy but great for wide shots, I got plenty of photos from landscapes to portraits, and as always on these trips I got my friends to model!

You can see the shots from this hike below, the second hike was another story, which will be in an upcoming blog!
