Summer hike

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.

  1. Lovely images, and we have most definitely been having the weather for a long walk in the countryside! (Ah, but the irony of posting this on the weekend the rains arrive! I love the yellow (parched) hues of the grassland, though, Mike. Nicely captured! :)
