Our Peak District photography tour will take place in November. The Peak District is unquestionably one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. It’s more rugged that some of the other national parks such as the Lakes, but that just adds to its intrigue. The Peaks has something to offer during every season, but I’m particularly fond of the landscape here during the autumn months. The diversity of the scenery is highlighted during these this transitional time, from sweeping moorland with decaying bracken to woodland full of ancient oaks or uniform birch. These can be intriguing subjects no matter the weather, but there’s always the possibility of mist or an early frost to add to the atmosphere. 

This will be the perfect introduction to the Peak District for any curious photographer, and if you’re already familiar with this part of the UK, hopefully this tour will allow you to go deeper and really get to know this gorgeous landscape at one of the most colourful times of the year.

The Peak District In Autumn Photography Tour

Peak District Photography Tour - Peak District Landscape Photography
The Peak District is unquestionably one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. It’s more rugged that some of the other national parks such as the Lakes, but that just adds to its intrigue. The Peaks has something to offer during every season, but I’m particularly fond of the landscape here during the autumn months. The diversity of the scenery is highlighted during these this transitional time, from sweeping moorland with decaying bracken to woodland full of ancient oaks or uniform birch. These can be intriguing subjects no matter the weather, but there’s always the possibility of mist or an early frost to add to the atmosphere. 

There will be an opportunity to spend time at Surprise View which is situated above Hathersage with views across the Hope Valley. At sunrise, there is often the chance of mist lingering in the valley and there are plenty of compositional opportunities. We’ll explore the enigmatic Padley Gorge, allowing for the opportunity to create long exposures of the flowing water and capturing the autumn foliage that flanks the gorge on either side. There is much to explore in this small area, including Bolehill Quarry, which is full of character with the silver birch boasting warm colours contrasting with the colours of the quarry floor. There’s also the enigmatic Longshaw Estate which has numerous species of tree, from ancient oaks to larch and birch.

The Peak District has an abundance of ‘edges’, many of which are accessible via a short, sharp uphill walk. The effort is worth it, as some of the most intriguing formations (referred to as Tors) can be found at the top. We’ll spend time exploring these locations, especially as sunset. Some of my favourites include Curbar Edge which has a herd of highland cows roaming it’s flanks, and Derwent Edge, which is a great place to photography sweeping views of Ladybower reservoir below. There’s also Bamford Edge which again looks out over Ladybower reservoir and the valley below. Ladybower reservoir is also an interesting prospect during  this time of the year, with the trees on the shoreline acting as a marvellous compositional tool.

One of the most recognisable spots in the entire Peaks is Mam Tor and for good reason. The ridge of Mam Tor links Rushup Edge and the western edge of Great Ridge, dominating the view from the Hope Valley below. This is cracking place for a sunrise shoot, and if the conditions are right there’s always the possibility of a cloud inversion and if that’s not feasible, the view is more than enough to entertain any photographer.

On the other side of the Peaks they will be an opportunity to explore The Roaches with it’s impressive rock faces and glorious woodland. Weather dependant, we might also explore the epic landscapes of Chrome Hill and Parkhouse Hill. 

This will be the perfect introduction to the Peak District for any curious photographer, and if you’re already familiar with this part of the UK, hopefully this tour will allow you to go deeper and really get to know this gorgeous landscape at one of the most colourful times of the year.
