White Peak Recce

We spent the Easter weekend scouring the White Peaks for suitable locations to include in my upcoming 3 day ‘Immersing in the Landscape’ photography workshop and were blessed by crowd free days. Even on a hot and muggy Easter Sunday we had the White Peaks almost to ourselves.

However the weather was less than perfect. In fact to be quite honest it was dire for a landscape photographer. A thick haze hung over the peaks throughout the weekend and succeeded in blocking many of the images I hoped to create. Thankfully a little work in Lightroom and Photoshop teased out some details and by using monochrome I managed to add more than a little atmosphere.

Here’s a ‘straight’ shot from the day, taken near Crowdicote, with the monochrome conversion beneath. I know which I prefer!



Despite these challenging atmospheric conditions I came away with a good selection of photos. Imagine what can be achieved with clearer air. I’m hoping to run my 3 day workshop in September and would welcome expressions of interest from anyone who may like to come along.

    1. Thank you Mandi. It was a wonderful trip to inspiring countryside. We just couldn’t see much more than a hazy outline of hills though! Fortunately I had my magic software to fall back on. Really looking forward to running a 3 day course here, we found some absolutely stunning locations.
