Well, the forecast is poor and no mistake. My strategy would be to look out of the window at about 4:30am and see what the sky's doing. But I'm only a 20 minute drive from Curbar Wink

LOL, lucky you, i've got a hours drive. The forecast i got was dry 1st thing but cloudy, rain later in the day. Is this location easy access? Not been before, but looking at the gallery its been well photographed.

Yes. Very easy, thus the proliferation of pics. The usual practice is to park at Curbar Gap car park.

You are aware that the sun rises at the back of the edge face so that it will be in shadow I assume?
Some good shots to be had though even so.

As Malcolm says, the Eastern edges in general don't often lend themselves easily to dawn photography. If it really is morning you're after then they're at thier best in cold inversions when the Derwent valley below fills up with low mist and then they're at thier spectular best. It may also be worth venturing up that way in about 4 weeks when the heather should be at it's best and again dawn will be a good time to be there beware, both dawn light and evening light can cast a peculiar colour on the heather. Sometimes its excellent but sometimes it looks a bit odd; pink+orange is a bit of a clash Grin
