Sunset over the Peak

Sunset over the Peak District Park
(Panasonic Lumix TZ10, HDR of 3 photos tone mapped in Photomatix))
After several miserable days this afternoon was pleasant but cold. This photo was taken just inside the Peak District National Park near Onecote. The Millstone is the symbol of the Park and is to be found where roads cross the boundary. One of the predominant rocks in the area is Millstone Grit which was used, as the name says, to produce millstones in the past.


  1. A beauty of a shot. A starburst through the millstone would be worth pursuing. I'll give it a whirl next time I'm home.

    1. Starburst through this one could be tricky. It's at the brow of a hill on a fairly busy road!

  2. Great silhouette photo with that unusual twist of the millstone. Would make a great wall poster...
