I was taking photos back into the light, which generally doesn’t come out very well, so always a good opportunity to try something different with the picture. This was all done in Lightroom. The blacks are converted to pure black.
We recently spent a week in and around The Peak District. On a particularly hot day we headed up to Mam Tor near Edale. I like Mam Tor. You don’t have to walk very far from the car park to get to the top! With a slight breeze and thermal uplifts it was the perfect place to watch para-gliders, and a hang-glider too. I tried my best with my sport-action-situation shots. There are more on my Flickr page. I also broke the cardinal rule of photography. Have a camera with you at all time! (I ended up having to borrow my partner’s D5000)
