Not the best of weather for a sunset

Eccles-Pike-View-to-Bowstones

Frustrating how the weather has changed so much these last couple of weeks. From glorious sunny days with full red and orange sunsets to the damp grey with little more than a hint of sun up & sun down we have now.

Having spent so much time in the workshop over the last few weeks I missed all my chances of the decent sunsets and had to make do with for me, a more typical High Peak sun down.  Unfortunately the Brown Hare which had been sat bathed with the glowing evening light in the gap of the old stone wall decided I had got too close for comfort and ambled off ! It may have been a nice image with that added interest.

Image from Eccles Pike looking toward Bowstones in the Peak National Park  - I quite enjoy the compositions of 'outside looking in'. Eccles Pike falls outside the National Park and yet it is surrounded on three sides  by views looking accross to parts of the National Park. The topographical millenium bronze on its top gives a good idea of the wealth of landscape around Eccles Pike from Kinder Scout to Axe Edge & Combs Moss and Mam Torr.

I will get that Hare another evening, probably in grey mist !
