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.

One cow is released for negotiation purposes: "I will get you guys out of there. Leave it with me."

Excellent 👍😂😂😂

I dont know how much longer the heather will stay in bloom, so enjoy it while you can. This is Stanage Edge engulfed in a purple sea (a week or so ago).

I took this pic 2 years ago (nearly to the very day) at Chatsworth. A bit of an oldie, you could say, taken on a Kodak bridge camera, before I switched to dslr. These days I would edit/post-process it slightly differently, but still... it remains one of favourite Chatsworth pictures.

Went up Bamford Edge for sunset pics. It was quite busy up there, with the best seats in the house already taken. Also, as far as sunsets go it was nice but not spectacular. So what is a boy to do? Decided to get down low in the prickly bush and try some different positions... With a bit of tlc afterwards, I think the result is not too bad.
