A hidden gem in the Peak District. Many people don’t even know this place exists. It is a pretty special place. The valley is home to a series of magnificent waterfalls, ponds and the ancient ruins of three mills. This area is of huge archaeological significance, here you will find one of the largest collections of water-powered industrial mills in the country! The area is a scheduled ancient archaeological site and much work continues to preserve this beautiful piece of English heritage.

Kodak TMAX400 is my favourite B&W stock.

I have never had that kind of luck…

Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera

You can’t expect to take a definitive image in half an hour. It takes days, often years.
