Hope Valley Inversion

I consider myself very fortunate to have witnessed an awesome cloud inversion in the Peak District this weekend. It is something I've been trying to see for a while now, and after much weather watching and a few failed attempts, I was convinced everything was coming together for this weekend. As I was driving across the Strines I started hitting fog patches and knew this was the day.

I found it quite challenging to photograph though, with heavy cloud cover (which is, I think, unusual for an inversion) providing fleeting light between sunrise and it disappearing again. These don't do the sight justice, but here goes anyway!

Re: Hope Valley Inversion

Thanks, I felt very privileged, and even after I'd packed the camera away I just hung around afterwards watching in wonder!

I met a nice couple of photographers too, they'd driven 3 hours from down south, so I think the inversion made it worthwhile for them.

I thought they would be good when you mentioned it Chris. Nicely done, wish I'd got up earlier now!

Re: Hope Valley Inversion

Thanks Phill, I’m not sure what’s next on the list now though, I have been obsessing over this for a while!

Re: Hope Valley Inversion

I can understand that, it's been in the back of my mind for a while now too. The other shot I've always wanted to get is a Milky Way shot over Magpie Mine. One day.

Re: Hope Valley Inversion

Never been to Magpie but the images I’ve seen look interesting. I never did get my Milky Way shot this year, so that’s still on the list.

Conditions still look ok for another inversion soon, apart from the wind, that needs to drop first
