Another trip to Kinder


Headed over to Kinder in the Peak District again on Saturday morning, slightly better equipped this time (I had walking boots & wide angle lens with me this time). The light was clearly going to be a vast improvement on the previous weekend, and my expectations were high. Laden with quite a chunk of kit, I yomped uphill for about 45 minutes eventually making it up to Oaken Clough shortly after dawn. The view was well worth the climb, and the peace and qu/wp-content/uploads/iet was lovely. I stayed up there for around an hour waiting for the sun to rise up over the top of Kinder behind me and begin to kiss the tops of the hills opposite me. I decided to really take my time, and play with a few ideas and was fairly well rewarded.

I also discovered, on the way down, that my new Tamron 70-200mm F2.8 has macro functionality. This was a really pleasant surprise and is actually surprisingly good, though had I discovered this at the top, I'd probably have done some more detailed work on the broken stone wall at the top of the clough.
