Autumn in the Peak District

Article text
After several overcast days, the final day of October was sunny and almost windless. The northern arm of Ladybower reservoir is surrounded by hills, making it sufficiently sheltered for the water to be still even in the afternoon. Using a 10 stop neutral density filter I achieved a shutter speed of 30 seconds, which brought out a strong reflection of larch, beech and oak trees in their autumn splendour on the lower slopes of Derwent Edge.
