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.

Just realised I don't have that particular camera anymore, and I sure do miss having a flippy-outy screen.

Long grass in Strines.
Ive cranked up the saturation on this one and, whilst Im normally not a fan of overly saturated images, I think it works rather well here.  What do you think?#peakdistrict #longgrass #britishcountryside

This little bumbler laid exhausted on my bedroom floor yesterday morning. I thought it was dead until I went to pick it up and noticed a little bit of movement. I put a few drops of honey on a piece of cardboard and watched Bumble regain its strength with every tiny sip. Ten minutes later, including a little bit of sunbathing, Bumble was strong enough to fly off! :) #HappyEndOn a side-note:I am clearly no expert in this type of macro photography... and its such a same that the second shot is out of focus, but its so cute with the honey sticking to its leg that I wanted to share that image anyway.Image attachmentImage attachment
