PEAK DISTRICT - 28/08/06

Dramatic lighting conditions across the Peak District and surrounding areas is the theme for this latest page of landscapes on Boots and Paws.

From left to right the photos above show Wildboarclough, Ridgegate Reservoir at Macclesfield Forest and a view across hills from close to the Macclesfield to Buxton Road with the summit of Shutlingsloe in the distance.
 
Late evening sunshine from Standing Stone, Macclesfield and two views taken on a short walk to the summit of Mam Tor near Castleton. The views are taken towards the north and the beautiful Vale of Edale, the start of the Pennine Way.
 
Hen Cloud, (left photo) at the Roaches provides the backdrop for a view from Tittesworth Reservoir where water levels have dropped in recent weeks. The reservoir was formed in 1858 by a dam across the Churnet Valley and provides drinking water for the Stoke-on-Trent area. The other two pictures above show Stanage Edge near Hathersage and a scene reminiscent of the Yorkshire Dales with an old barn and dry stone walls near Longnor.
     
Storm clouds race across the reef limestone summits of Chrome Hill and Parkhouse Hill close to Hollinsclough Village.
