Black Rocks

Having sat in the car whilst it rained our paitence was rewarded with a rainbow forming as we looked across towards Black Rocks.

Middleton Top.

Middleton Top

Pausing on the path up to the moor I set the camera up to try out the filters as the sun catches the chimney on Middleton Top.

Crich Stand

Diverting off the path for a view across the valley to Crich Stand.

Alport Stone

Crossing the moor the sun lighting up the cliffs catches my attention. The masts at Alport Stone are visible in the distance.

Heading down towards the High Peak Trail and the turbines above Carsington Water are in view.
Green power might be a good thing but I'd rather see the money invested in supplying
everyone with solar panels than the landscape being blighted by these things.
