Near Wain Stones, Saddleworth Moor

By andy_AHG    
A blast of red light at sunset hits the Wain Stones, on Saddleworth Moor.

The general perception of Saddleworth Moor is that it is a bleak place, haunted by terrible deeds. Documentaries and news reports show the bleakest parts of the moor (which is usually Wessenden Moor, also conveniently near a car park). The reality couldn't be further from the truth. It is a spectacular place with high, wind sculpted rock formations, deep cloughs with many waterfalls and fantastic views over the hills. A photographer's paradise!

Many thanks to those who voted and commented on my recent pics. Especially those who gave them their awards and to Pete for the recent HCs.
