The glories of Dovedale at Dusk

by quaesitor

Just back from a week over New Year in the glorious Derbyshire Peaks. We walked up Dovedale several times over the week, including a wonderful ascent (which makes it sound far grander than it really was!) of Thorpe Cloud just as the sun was setting. Truly magnificent. I can assure you that no filters have been used in the production of these images…

    Ah, you should have called in! This valley makes me think either of Prince Caspian, or of orcs chasing the Fellowship through the trees!

    Thanks for these photos, it’s a beautiful spot, used to live not too far away from it and loved going to it.
