Hi Folks,

This is one that I've dredged out of the archives from a couple of years ago, that didn't get an airing at the time. It was taken one morning on Adam's Cross, Saddleworth Moor when I turned up for a sunrise. What I thought at first was mist rising from the reservoirs, turned out to be smoke from a huge fire, that burned all the way down Greenfield Brook, from Yeoman Hey. Alderman and Alphin can be seen just sticking their noses above the smoke.

Besides it's sad associations with the Moors Murderers, Saddleworth Moor is not the bleak place of horror that it has been portrayed as. It is a beautiful, rugged place, filled with history and legends.

Incredible that this has just been in the archives Andy!!

I thought it was mist, looks like the maw of the valley has just sucked all that smoke into it.

GET A FEELING THIS ONE IS GOING TO DO EXCEPTIONALLY WELL.

Agree, it does look like mist and seen similar if not quite so scenic in Derbyshire. Wink

Faultless. It should be loaded to the general gallery as I think it would be in with a shout for POW.

I love this. It almost feels as if the hills are sliding into the valley and that the rocks in the fg are the only safe place. Beautiful, atmospheric conversion.
