Where can you take the best photographs of the Peak District?

A guide for landscape photography features over 50 locations, with directions, where to park and best times for photographs.

Ellen Bowness, who compiled the book, says: “The Peak District is a landscape photographer’s paradise. The sheer variety of subjects to shoot could keep any photographer entertained all year, from the dramatic edges and reservoirs of the Dark Peak to the limestone dales of the White Peak.

“Particularly good locations at this time of year are Mam Tor, Winnats Pass and the eastern edges such as Stanage, Curbar and Baslow, especially at sunrise when there’s a bit of mist in the valleys below.”
