Mam Tor

Mam Tor is hill Castleton in the High Peaks of Derbyshire. Mam Tor means "Mother Hill" because after the many land slips small hills have formed on the eastern side of the hill (below). 

Above if one of the many iconic shots that you can get on the way up Mam Tor.  The snaking road into Edale.  One of the reasons that this is so popular is its accessibility.  There is a National Trust Car Park at the bottom of the hill that gives easy, but slightly gut bustin access.  This of course makes it a busy place to be even on an evening.  See my post on One Minute On Earth blog for proof of this :-)

This week we went as a group from our camera club.  It proved a popular venue with most, although the light wasn't quite as good as it could have been.

The paths a well maintained and there are some great photo ops at the top too!

All together a great evening.  Well worth a visit.  The view along the great ridge above is actually a better sunrise location Here is the view at sunrise in the snow.

Shortly after this a runner ran through, opened the gate and the sanow fell off it!  Shot ruined! 

Thanks for visiting my blog once again.  Please leave a message below if you can, even if its just to say hi!

 

All the best

It's my tripod. Made by a German company. www.berlebach.de
I saw it at Photokina and Tim's correct I believed the salesperson who persuaded me it was better than a metal/ carbon fibre models. The wooden tripod absorbs vibrations better than others.

Thanks John and Lin. I think he got his tripod at the photography show when a good looking lady told him it was better than a carbon fibre one :-)

Nicely presented Tim. My favourite is the shot with the runners, but the most interesting is one of your members wooden tripods (I'm with Lin on that!).

Great selection Tim and so vivid too. Man that wooden tripod - surveyor's tripod perhaps?
