Peak District B&W

I took a walk along Burbage edge, hoping for a colourful sunset over Higger Tor that never happened, so lets do away with the colour altogether!

Lovely tonality and the sky is amazing - but I'd lose that ugly concrete thing in the foreground !

Re: Peak District B&W

Thanks Paul and Mark, the sky didn't last long, within a few minutes a thick dark cloud had moved across, blotting out any hope of a decent sunset.

The thing in the foreground isn't concrete, it's carved from the grit-stone of the northern peaks, the same as all the abandoned mill stones in the area. This is a part carved water trough, which has a crack down the side. The theory is the stone mason abandoned his work when the crack happened. Its a well known landmark on the edge.
As for ugly, I guess that's down to the individual taste.

I've managed to point my Nik collection plugins (free version) at Affinty Photo that I now use (previously they were attached to my old PS Elements software). I used Nik Silver effex pro for the B&W conversions

Great Shot Chris. It really works well in B&W.
I've seen the background several times but never spotted that stone trough. I like it and would definitely leave it in.

Thanks Phill, it's on the top path at Burbage south. You wouldn't miss it if you walk that path, it's about a metre high! But if you walk the path from the little car park, without going uphill you'll not see it.

Re: Peak District B&W

If you're coming from the hathersage side, go past the big surprise view car park, and then just past the bend at the bottom of the hill, there's a little carpark on the left for about 4 cars (it's before the right turn for Padley). Once you've parked up, there's a gate at the end of this car park - this is the lower path, which is the easiest walk, still with great views and a lovely stone bridge over Burbage brook. This route also gives you access to the middle path just under the edge, if you walk up the hill, a further scramble would then get you to the top path. But if you just want to do the top path where the trough is, ignore this first gate and look through the trees to the right of the car park and you'll see another gate about 10 yards further up. This one leads to the path along the top of the edge.
Hope that helps.
