This was my second attempt in the Peaks today after getting thoroughly soaked a few hours earlier. Even the dog looked at me as if i was mad. I haven't been out on the eastern edges since early spring, and it was a welcome surprise to see all the heather back in flower, bringing some much needed colour to an otherwise barren landscape.
I wasn't the only one there this evening, I passed at least a dozen other photographers and we were all praying for good light. Unfortunately the sunset didn't quite happen due to a huge cloud bank that had stubbornly parked itself on the horizon. Luckily the clouds did turn pink in the opposite direction, however.
So, off I went for a wonder. Eventually, just after sundown I found this arrangement of rocks facing more or less the right direction, adorned in a gorgeous patch of flowering heather. The colour was beautiful, with the clouds complementing the heather with their own shade of pink – it was just perfect!
Time was against me so I quickly set up the tripod hoping to catch enough light to showcase the flowers at their best. Once the sun had disappeared over the horizon, light diminished quickly, so I was really up against it. It wasn't until later when I had returned home that I realised what a gorgeous image I had captured. I have to say I was very satisfied with the result.
