Walking The Peak District: Above Erwood Reservoir Tuesday April 2, 2013

What I show in this video is a lovely short walk along a place called Foxlow Edge, which is above Erwood Reservoir in the UK Peak District.

I think this winter has been record breaking, not so much for its general severity as it’s prolonged nature. Back in November 2012 I remember feeling right, here we go again, several months of depressing gloom in another British winter.

And it hasn’t yet stopped – I refer to “winter” but now it’s april which in calendar terms should be spring. If we get a little sunshine but then further months of grey summer gloom – often the case – I won’t be happy.

I reflect on this subject in my video: how we portray nature and hill walking in literary, photographic, and videographic terms.
