The Fabled Monsal Head Viewpoint

The Fabled Monsal Head Viewpoint
This panorama is taken from perhaps one of the most photographed views in England. The viaduct you can see down in the valley is the Monsal Dale Viaduct and just behind it, the former railway line (which is now the Monsal Trail) dives into the Headstone Tunnel. The routing of a railway through this valley caused a little controversy at the time but I think the presence of the viaduct really enhances this view and without it, I wouldn't have been here anyway.

Unfortunately, I didn't really have the best of weather conditions but all things considered, I think this one has come out pretty well. There's some detail in the sky and if you go into the original size, you can have a good look at the view is brilliant detail.
