The white peaks

...or more accurately, these are some images from 'The Dark Peak' area of the Derbyshire Peak District.
On Saturday I walked around and to the top of Win Hill.

1) Lose Hill & the Great Ridge, with Edale Moor beyond - view NW from Thornhill Brink


2) View from Win Hill summit past Lose Hill to Brown Knoll & Kinder Low at the west end of Edale


3) Mam Tor & Rushup Edge - view west from Win Hill summit


4) Bamford Edge, with Stanage Edge beyond - view east from the top of Win Hill


5) The Snake Road bridge across Ladybower Reservoir at Ashopton


Thanks for looking

Re: The white peaks

I'd love to be walking those hills again.

Re: The white peaks

Very nice set of images, I rather like the fact that there is only partial snow covering in some of them. I really must get out there more.

John, You wouldn't be lonely!

Though the limitations of this forum's image downscaling for website display make it difficult - in images 1,2 & 3 you can just make out that there are walkers on the summits of Lose Hill and Mam Tor. In fact there are also at least 2 hanggliders on Mam Tor - it must take real dedication/obsession to haul the kit up that snowy path.

Along with John, my days of hillwalking are now over . These bring back memories of earlier, fitter days walking these paths. Thanks for the reminder

Re: The white peaks

I enjoyed this set very much Chris.
You have captured the area so well and it must be a joy to walk.
I could almost feel the crisp air - whilst we are dealing with humidity and summer heat.

Re: The white peaks

Yes, those exemplify 'crisp air'!

I've got a few days booked in to a B&B near Hope in around 3 weeks time to do some walking and photography while The Management is away with one of her school friends. I hope I get as good weather as this - knowing my luck it'll probably be pi$$ing down (but I have researched a few local waterfalls so I'll at least have those to photograph!).

'Hope' is a lovely name for such a dreary village! (I guess the dominating cement works is still there?) Still, when you're up on the Kinder Plateau it's easy to navigate because there's always the smoke from the chimney to give you your bearings!

Jim,
It's an abbreviation. The full name of that village is: 'Hope the cement works gets demolished soon'
