Higger Tor – Peak District

Higger Tor – Peak District

Last weekend (1st & 2nd August 2015) was an unusual one for a Barnsley Wedding Photographer in mid-summer (yes apparently it is summer, even if the weather disagrees) in that I had a weekend “off”

No Weddings to shoot (due to a cock-up not of my doing lol), and nothing else booked in so time for a well earned bit of rest – except – I then get a call asking if I want to go see a “Masters of Vision” landscape photography exhibition near Nottingham. Well, as I’m also offering Lake District Landscape Photography Courses and Holidays it’d be rude not to wouldn’t it; and amidst some rather dodgy images and amazingly sky-high prices were a few gems of photographers new to me – which is nice

Naturally the plan was to then take some photos somewhere and despite an initial foray into Notts town centre (not to be recommended) we set off to somewhere I’ve never been before in the Peak District National Park – a place called Higger Tor – which I can’t stop thinking of as Tigger’s Hor !!! Giving a totally different perspective on what it might be lol

For those not familiar with Higger Tor its basically opposite the rather more famous Stanage Edge, a gritstone escarpment well known to climbers, walkers and photographers alike

What follows then is a set of images showing my first brief take on Higger Tor taken over just 35 minutes on-site starting at 2:50 p.m.  before heading to a pub to avoid the coming rain, we then emerged at 4:50 p.m. for a further 15 minutes of shooting at Stanage Edge prior to making a dash to avoid a storm that was coming in. So what follows is less than an hour’s total photography at this awesome spot – well worth a visit for picnics and photography, but take a little longer and you’ll get better shots I’m sure

Here I was determined to take a shot or two of THE most cliched image possible here – lol – a milestone! Aside from their historical significance I don’t find them photogenic at all – but I shot them anyway for fun
