Well, I’m absolutely shattered right now. It’s not like I walked many miles at the weekend – I suspect it’s a combination of ‘brain drain’ and lack of sleep.
I slept well Saturday night but not so the previous evening – thanks to the LiteHouse Solo tent flapping in some 30mph+ winds and the ensuing condensation splattering into my face. I did pitch somewhere exposed though – to suss out it’s strengths and weaknesses.
The aim at the moment is to capture various scenes of the Peak park during the autumn season (and every other thereafter) for a more elaborate version of my recent video, ‘A Walk In The Park’. So, I’ll be spending many of my weekends in the Peak District for quite some time now. Which is no bad thing, of course – I’ve already visited little known sites and explore other places well off the beaten path.
But I will seek to place my footing on other high topped places when I can squeeze them in. I’m keen to get back to the Howgills at some point this winter, for example.
For now, have a listen to this short track I’ve put together for this forthcoming labour of love Peak District video and peruse some screenshots fresh from the video tape I captured this weekend….
