This is my first photograph for Peak District on Line so I would like to start by saying a big thank you to James and all at Peak District on Line for inviting me to contribute to this exciting venture.
This photograph is all about light and how it affects the image and most of all patience!!
I actually went out to photograph some rocks at the southern end of the Peak District but on arrival the light was overcast and grey and not the light I was hoping for.
I was about ready to pack up and set off home but something told me to hang around a bit longer as a chink of light was showing in the distance.
Then suddenly this shaft of light showed through and I managed to shoot off a few frames to capture this image before the sun disappeared behind the clouds again.
The photograph was taken around sunset, and as all photographers will tell you this time as well as sunrise are the best for photography as the light is so warm and the shadows are long as well as it being a lovely time to be out in the countryside enjoying the beauty of it all.
I hope you enjoy this image as much as I did taking it; I was so pleased I waited just a few minutes longer before setting off home, another lesson learnt.
