Dovedale Floods and Clumber Park

Our route back from the Peak District was via Dovedale and Clumber Park (both National Trust). We wondered why the car park was quite empty when we arrived at Dovedale - the valley was flooded and it was not possible to get across the stepping stones or to easily walk along the other side of the river. However the colours reflected in the extensive water areas made up for it.
Clumber Park was very busy with people out enjoying the autumn trees.

Morning Mist in the Peak District

We set off from Buxton to drive to Dovedale wanting to get there early but got distracted by a very unusual sky, the frost on the grass and the mist in the valleys so a few shots here into the sun and away from it.

Buxton Last sunlight and Night Images

We were staying in Buxton on Saturday night and drove across from the PAGB finals in Chorley just in time to get the last of the sunshine on the autumn trees just outside the town. We then spent an hour taking images in the Gardens as the light went completely from the sky and finally it was dark and clear enough for a myriad of stars.

Playing with the multiple feature of my Fuji camera helped pass a very wet Saturday morning at Salford Quays

Yarrow Valley Country Park

We had time for a short visit to Yarrow Valley Park, a very extensive nature reserve in Chorley before the light went completely. With all the recent rain, the weir and river were very impressive and occupied us from some time. There are several lakes there as well as beautiful woodland.

Salford Quays in the Rain

It took us much longer than we hoped to drive from Cambridge to Salford because of the very wet roads so it was dark by the time we had eaten and set off to explore. Here a few images taken under my umbrella of the beautiful night vistas here.
