Derbyshire’s High Peak

Derbyshire’s High Peak is stunningly photographic at any time of the year. This haunting area is also referred to as the Dark Peak, that is to say the upland areas dominated by ancient Gritstone whose character has been moulded by aeons of wind and water erosion into the transient views we see today. Lacking the fossilised marine life seen in the White Peak, this area of long dead river delta’s has an appeal often enhanced by turbulent weather conditions. We tend to walk the area during winter months and have spent tented nights in subzero conditions in an effort to capture a moment reminiscent of a Pleistocene dawn. Images we capture here tend to get a monochrome treatment which we feel adds drama and impact. This collection showcases a sample of our High Peak archive.
