Last Saturday we went to the Peak District with an intention to stroll among the heather. The heather was still there (and some of it still blooming beautifully) but so were the dreaded midges. There were plenty of clouds, but the kind that produces isolated shafts of light - perfect for dramatic lighting. The boys started their manouvers but were persuaded to accept our decision of retreat to plan B - Mam Tor.

Plan B worked perfect. No midges. Excellent vistas to vale of Edale on one side and Hope Valley to the other side. Spectacular light.
It is a truly windswept place (hence the lack of midges I suppose) so we got wind-chilled by sunset and happily ran back to the car parked below the pass.

There is a stained glass window in our dining room that provides us with moments of magical light at breakfast time.
