Photographer's Note

This picture was taken at Curbar Edge in the Peak District on Christmas day morning...the edge is characteristic of many in the Peak district and is made up of Gritstone.

Gritstone like this was used to create millstones to mill flour and to make grindstones to sharpen blades. The rock is composed of sharp angular grains of sediment and is famous amoungst climbers who favour it because of the friction the rough surface it provides. The snow on the ground accentuated the patterns of fields and their boundaries I thought. This picture was taken on my first foray back into the Peak District after my Seychelles trip, quite a strange feeling at first to be immersed in such a different landscape and so cold too!
