Lower Shelf Stones

By jamesgrant      
This is Lower Shelf Stones on Bleaklow. It overlooks the town of Glossop as well as having cracking views down Doctors Gate and the Snake Pass. I came here after photographing the aircraft wreckage on Higher Shelf Stones.

I was actually facing 90 degrees south (left) to capture the sidelighting when the sun broke below the clouds, but in the end the light I had expected just didn't materialise. Instead I had to quickly re-compose while it lasted and a slight but obvious red light cast a glow across the landscape, especially on the gritstone rock.
