I had made up my mind at the beginning of the year that I needed to use more of my holiday quota this year as I always waste two or three weeks. So I've been taking the odd day off here and there (Balance 1). Yesterday I took one of these impromptu days off and went for a walk with long time friend David Horton.
We decided to go to Alport Castles (seen in the background to this photo) and started our walk by parking the car at the base of Win Hill. Win Hill is a 462 m peak near Bamford and once at the top you see outstanding views across the Derwent valley, Hathersage and Castleton.
We then walked over to Hope Cross - a 270 years old stone monument dating from 1737 that was used to mark a major path junction.
From here we descend into Alport Valley and then up to the magnificent Alport Castles. Here gritstone rocks stand precariously in one of the countries largest natural landslides. (balance 2)
I rested the camera on a rock using the ePHOTOzine strap as a base to get the camera level and positioned pointing in the right direction (balance 3) In preparation to take a self time shot of us both. It was very windy and the camera blew and moved position so I went up to adjust and the shutter fired.

I think it just might be a more interesting shot than you would have, if the camera had not moved Peter.

Aye, it does say something more than the two of you just standing there.
