The Last Autumn Walk of 2018, album created on November 30, 2018

The last day of Autumn and a sunny interval in the middle of the day was inviting for a walk in the hills. Starting at Peep 'O Day (a high point on the A624 between Hayfield and Chapel-en-le-frith Derbyshire) I walked up to Chinley Churn and Cracken Edge back just in time for the end of daylight. Views to Kinder Scout lit by low sun.

Doctor's Gate path, album created on October  8, 2018

Starting in Old Glossop the Doctor's Gate path is an ancient route over the Pennines passing over Snake Summit ( there crossing the Pennine Way long distance footpath) parallel with the main A57 Snake Pass road. Its local to me and a regular walking area - although I rarely walk the full length I tend to pick off the best bits for shot walks. At the highest point there are good views to Shelf Stones on Bleaklow (North) and the Northern edge of Kinder Scout to the South

The name was coined starting from the name of the old Firth of Clyde Puffer The Vital Spark in the books by Neil Munro (a childhood favourite). For photography I thought of a vital spark of light on the subject and long ago came up with Vital Sparks for the name of the collection.
