It’s been a long hot summer so far, and walking in the hills is a different experience.
Out go the waterproofs and thick coats and in with sunblock, light clothing and plenty of water.
This was a walk above the village of Chinley in Derbyshire’s Peak District, talking in Cracken Edge. It affords great views and signs the landscape is parched.
I slipped my lighter Fuji X100T in my rucksack for our walk, which copes admirably with a sweeping vista.
