David Oakes is an artist with a camera, and I wanted to share his artistry with my followers. Enjoy his magic.
Howden Reservoir, Upper Derwent Valley, Derbyshire
The day did not start with any sign of promise, in fact thick fog blanketed the countryside.
By this afternoon there was still little to really encourage one to head out into the wilds, but we did and headed for the Upper Derwent Valley. A wise decision for as the sun started to drop, and despite a very still windless evening, the fog cleared leaving a near clear sky.
Howden Dam, Upper Derwent Valley, Derbyshire
The low sun cut through the trees lighting up the hill side, where frost was starting to form, with a strange warming glow…
Not bad for Mid- January……A “Perfect End” to a day that originally held no promise.
