Eyam sheep roast

The sheep roasting jack in Eyam in the Peak District. The village carnival, when the sheep roast takes place, is held each September. It’s not something I’ve ever attended, but it’s nearly lunchtime and the thought of it is making me hungry!

The second photograph is of a building just behind the roasting jack.

Times change

I really like the way this quaint village scene came out (it’s in Eyam). It has a nice contrast and crispness about it. It has a somewhat nostalgic air, or a least it does until you notice the modern cars in the background and the fact that the phone box has now been modified to house a defibrillator instead of a payphone. Hopefully no-one will attempt to make a call with it! 🙂

Frosted tree

Another photo from my outing in the Peak District the other week. I took a few shots of this area of silver birch with my DSLR, but grabbed a shot with the Yashica Mat too. Unfortunately, it seems the batch of film I was using was one that had faults and so the print from the backing paper has shown up on a number of pictures – especially in low detail areas such as the sky. I think I’ve manged to remove it reasonably well in Photoshop though.

Frozen

I got up early and went out to catch the sunrise in the Peak District last weekend. The place was blanketed with a thin layer of snow and it was a crisp and cold morning(-1.5C). I shot several colour photos on digital, but took the Yashica Mat out with me and shot a roll-and-a-half of black and white too, including this one.

Winter walkers

My initial plan for this photo was just of an empty scene with the track curving around to White Edge Lodge in the middle-right of the frame but, upon seeing this couple and their dog approaching, I held the composition until they were close and had a separation between them. They probably wondered what I was doing, standing still with a weird-looking old-fashioned camera as they walked by, although both responded to my greeting of “good morning” in a friendly way. 🙂
