Dark Peak White Peak
Between 1980 and 2000 I took many photographs in and around the Peak District. Bright happy pictures were not for me. I was drawn to the darker places. Too many times, even on sunny days, I felt a sense of isolation, of abandonment and silence. Often the only sound was the ‘cawing’ of crows, and the constant wind on the barren high moorlands.
This landscape can be harsh, wild and unforgiving; particularly in winter, but even in summer the weather can change rapidly, from T shirt to warm waterproofs in no time. Its altitude of between 100m and 623m above sea level affects its climate. Winters can be long.
