Bluebells in Beeley Wood

A walk along the river through Beeley Woods with the intention of photographing bluebells. Plenty to choose from but as usual I prefer isolated stems and found an area where I could get a low viewpoint with an interesting out of focus background.

I then walked up through Oughtibridge and on to KirkEdge Road, up Derwent Lane over to Wadsley Common and back home.

Higher Shelf Stones

Trig point higher stone shelf

It’s bleak on the moors…a trip out to Bleaklow and Higher Shelf Stones with a stop off at the crash site of the 16th Photographic Reconnaissance Squadron’s  Boeing RB-29A

This was taken while we (Myself, Dave Ange and Jenny Horton) stopped for a very quick and very cold food break. Still arguably summer so I was surprised we got showered with hail stones!

Photographing the Perseids Meteor Shower

The Perseids Meteor Shower can be seen each year when up to 60 firework like streaks  are seen per hour in the Northern Hemisphere.  The event occurs mid July to Mid August with the most activity around the 13th of August.

I went out last night from Midnight until 1:30am and saw around15 meteors. I sat in a field with my Olympus OM-D camera mounted on a tripod pointing up at the sky in a south facing direction with a 9mm wide angle lens so it would capture a wide zone of sky.

I set the ISO to 800 and exposure to manual with a duration of 8seconds. I then took photos hoping that a meteor would appear during the exposure. The camera needed to process each frame to reduce noise between shots and that was also about 8 seconds.  I took around 300 photos and managed to capture two trails.

This was the best one

Lost on t’ Moors

Today proved to be a bit of a mare. I decide to go to Three Shires Head for the first time and forgot to take a road map. I headed off to the Cat and Fiddle with the knowledge that Flash was nearby. Had lunch – lovely bacon baguette, and then asked for directions to Flash. I parked the car in a lay-by on the main road with a plan to do a walk from the Mark Richards White Peak Walks book.

It was freezing even with several layers, so we decided to cut it short and park closer, which meant taking a back road. At one point I reversed to turn around and got the car stuck – heard a huge scraping sound under the front bumper and thought I’d done serious damage. Bizarrely on inspection it was just a scuff to the underside. I parked in the road side and we headed of to Three Shires Head.

This was one of the mini waterfalls half way down the track

It’s a lovely photogenic spot with a couple of bridges and several waterfalls. There was ice all around and sadly it started to snow with fine specks that kept getting on the filter during the exposure, so I had to give up and put the camera away.

We headed of back up a hill and somehow took a wrong turning. It was starting to go dark and we were on the top of the moors – no map, no idea which direction and no idea where we’d parked. The book wasn’t helping!  Quite scary, but after a while of rambling around aimlessly I noticed a familiar landmark and was able to find the way back.

Note to self must be more prepared!

All came good when we ended up in the Indian Palace restaurant in Buxton – superb food!

Pete in Waders

First outing of my new Christmas present – a pair of green waders.

I used them to get across the river at Black Clough. Seen here using a Lee Filters Big Stopper to photograph very blurry water

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Headed off up to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park for some photography and it rained!

The weather was dismal – drab grey sky and rain.

First stop was the YSP cafe for home cooked chips and a hummus & olive wrap, followed by scones with cream & jam…yummy!

I used my infrared converted Pentax *ist D and a 28mm f/2.8 lens for today’s photography. No tripod, flash or filters. I was lucky enough to catch the back end of the exhibition by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa. A few of his statues were still on display in the grounds, sadly I missed the indoor exhibition as that closed on the 22nd.
