Photographs from Kinder Scout, Peak District

Here are a couple of images from my walk up Kinder Scout on the 28th Dec 2011. At the start it was quite sunny but the whole time it was really windy. It was a great walk though. We went up Grinds Brook from Edale and then round the top to the road just before Mam Tor. About half way round I persuaded my walking companions (my brother Graham and Joanne) to stop in the freezing cold wind while I pitched my Trailstar.

The first image is looking back down Grinds Brook and in the background on the right you will see Lose Hill.

And this is just a little way along from Grinds Brook and looking back to the east.

Adore Noir – Fine Art Black and White Photography Magazine

Adore NoirRecently I stumbled across a new bi-monthly PDF based publication called Adore Noir. It is a black and white fine art photography magazine and the 4th issue has just been release. Content is predominantly a portfolio of high quality images accompanied by an interview with the photographer. The images look great on my iPad.

“A fine art black and white photography magazine featuring the works of emerging and noted photographers from around the world.”

A really inspiring publication and a must have for anyone who enjoys monochrome photography whether you are a photographer or not.  At just £1.90 per issue (at the current exchange rate) it is great value. I have all 4 issues and look forward to the next. Highly recommended.
