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.

Eyam cemetery

The rear of Eyam church is where the more recent graves appear to be located, and they rest in orderly rows overlooked by a number of tall trees.

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.

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.

White Edge Lodge is perhaps a half-mile from the nearest road, from where it can be seen peeking out over the heather. This shot was taken on my first ever walk up to the lodge itself. I think I picked pretty good conditions to do so.

Winter field

This was taken back in January on a walk where I wish I’d worn some Wellies – although the ground looks crisp and frozen, the snow was in melt and my feet were sinking up to the ankles in places.
