But then it goes almost straight up to the top of Derwent Edge but once up it's also relatively flat. So the hike is fairly simple, although it's a bit to go.
I've never been up here when the heather is in bloom. It was nice to finally see how it is and it sure were some amazing parts with all the purple. Unfortunately the weather was not the best with a wind speed of 10-13m / s, showers and overcast. Still, it's nice to show you how the pictures can get when its overcast.
It's amazing to walk through the Peak District right now because of all heather blooms and you have to be quick as it suddenly is over.
But I'm not leaving it at these pictures, I will be look for other places where the heather is in larger patches. Will try to go out there in the late afternoons to get softer color of the landscape while the sun is setting down. Was planning to go this afternoon as the forecast was sunshine, but living on an Island it changes rather quickly and already now it's overcast instead. May try during next week instead.
Camera equipment: Nikon 3Ds, nikon 16-35mm f4 and Hitech Graduated soft nd filter 0.6.
