Peter Simons Photography
Amateur photography and Peak District Enthusiast

Pete Simons is an amateur photographer with a special interest for landscapes, pets and the occasional local event. Photography and graphic design have always been among his main interests along with music, though his day job is in IT. Pete hails from The Netherlands and moved to Sheffield fifteen years ago. With the Peak District on the doorstep, the photographic opportunities are endless. Favourite places include Higger Tor, the Derwent Valley, Strines and Chatsworth. He publishes to Instagram and Facebook as Peter Simons Photography, and regularly posts in Facebook groups such as Let’s Go Peak District, Peak District Photography and Pictures Of Sheffield Old And New. He likes to experiment with different styles, but most images are moody with strong contrast and rich colours. Pete attended a Villager Jim Photography Day with Phil Sproson to further explore the camera’s possibilities; and he can be found out in the Peak most weekends and evenings.

Had lovely afternoon in the Derwent valley, only to come home to the news that Im now unemployed. Not a great start to the year, but Im certainly not alone in this sort of situation. The Peak District is a great place to unwind though, so if you find yourself fallen on hard times, dont forget to make time to go out and clear your head.

Sorry for that Peter. I was recently out of work for the first time in over 20 years and I’ve ended up in a better place. I hope the same for you. X

Hope things improve for you xx

Sorry to hear this. Hope you get something soon.

So sorry to hear that Pete. 😞

Sheep in the morning sun. Added a sepia filter in post-prod for a nostalgic look; and highlighted the red leafs. The tree to the left helps frame the image.

That’s just a light dusting of mud compared to most horses at the moment!

It was a lot of mud!
