Capturing the moment

Another photograph from Curbar Edge. I don’t know this couple, but though the composition was quite nice and so I grabbed a quick shot when it presented itself.

An ascent (in colour)

Following on from yesterday’s photos of rock climbers in black and white, here’s another shot I took with a different camera and on colour film.

A bride on the edge

On my visit to Curbar Edge last weekend I overheard a group of people exclaim “Look. Someone is getting married!“. When I looked over, sure enough, there was a girl in a wedding dress stood atop the crags.

It soon became apparent, however, that it wasn’t a wedding, but a photoshoot, with a guy taking photographs of the girl in various poses atop the gritstone edge. Whether she was due to get married soon and wanted some striking photos, or if it was just a random shoot I’m unsure but, whatever the case, I took the opportunity to take a few photographs myself – this isn’t something I see everyday, so wanted to record the moment as it happened.

I took several frames, but the one I’m sharing here today was the best, and I’m very happy with the way this one turned out.

Just a cow, drinking from a stream

Today’s photo was taken not long before I took the shot of the two houses I posted here yesterday, albeit I was still within the confines of the Peak District National Park for this one.

It’s a fairly mundane shot of a cow taking a drink of water from a stream, but I really like the way the colour of its hide has been rendered with the Lomography film – a lovely, rich, saturated brown that stands out against the more muted greens and beiges of the grass.

After taking a drink, the cow wandered through the stream to the tree at the right of the frame, stuck it’s head through the V-shaped trunk, and gave its neck a good scratch on the bark.
