Usually when we try to plan a photo walk based on an actual walking route it takes us at least 3 hours longer than it would any normal walking group since we keep stopping to take photos. As it happened for this particular walk to the summit of Shining Tor we managed to make it in almost the right amount of time, despite getting lost on the way back.
This may actually have been one of our longest ever walks, nearly 8 kilimeters. The views when we reached the top were spectacular, but a real challenge to do justice on a photograph; but we gave it our best shot.
Oh and if anyone fancies taking the same route that we did, the link to the route is on the link below. We definitely recommend printing this route and bringing it with you. Oh and watch out for the 'faint grassy path' on step 13/14 - we totally missed this path and ended up in the bushes as you'll see in our photos below.
We have plenty of other articles from other places we have visited over the years so please do stick around and browse our archives. We also have a Facebook page and a Twitter feed if you want to keep in the loop.
If you are a photographer yourself and fancy joining us on a future outing then create yourself a free account on this website to get onto our mailing list, and if you're a Facebooker or a Flickrer you can join our groups on there too.
February 2014 - It's been a few months since we had a good old fashioned walk outdoors so we set a date and met up for a walk around Langsett Reservoir. It didn't rain much but it was dull and cloudy and extremely windy, but at least we got to walk a few miles and meet a few new people along the way.
Here are a few of the photos we took on that windy winter Sunday morning.
October 2013 - Rivelin Valley has been right on our doorstep all this time, we finally made our way there for our October 2013 outing, here are some of our snaps.
