Hills of the White Peak in low evening light

Hills of the White Peak in low evening light
The more southern parts of the Peak District National Park are known as the White Peak (as distinct from the peaty soiled Dark Peak of the north.) They are limestone hills once, so it is claimed, part of a coral reef in warmer seas.These are Chrome and Parkhouse Hills (not far from the spa town of Buxton) and are seen in low late afternoon light with the remains of the first of the season's snow still lying (my father had a saying that while snow lingers, more is to come.) The valley beyond them houses the infant River Dove on its way down to the famous Dovedale Gorge. The river is the county boundary between Derbyshire and Staffordshire. When I think of these Staffordshire hills (OK, they are just a few extreme right) I cannot help thinking that they are sharing a county which historically had its southern tip very close to the city centre of Birmingham. There is some contrast there.
