If you are a keen photographer who can't miss a sunrise or are on holiday using a mobile phone camera, this guidebook will take you to the most beautiful and photogenic places in the Peak District. PHOTOGRAPHING THE PEAK DISTRICT is a photography-location and visitor guidebook. The Peak District is a beautiful upland area at the southern end of the Pennines stretching from Ashbourne in the south to the M62 in the north. The northern Dark Peak is an area of wild heather-clad moorland lined by gritstone edges and boulders that contrast with the limestone plateau and deep dales of the White Peak. Cut by sparkling rivers, populated with beautiful villages, a rich industrial heritage and home to Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, the UK's first national park has photographic opportunities around every corner, all year round.
