SECRETS • The ancient, twisted, moss-covered trees of Padley Gorge are so beautiful. It’s a designated SSSI and by day it’s filled with birdsong and the sound of Burbage Brook, although I’m not actually sure I’d want to walk here alone at night....📍 Padley Gorge, Peak District, England

Wouldn’t be out of place in a horror film!

That's beautiful and haunting Peaklass... lovely. Padley Gorge is amazing but agree a night time visit might be a tad eerie. Is that the silhouette of a tree or a Troll like creature attacking...? 😂

Beautiful and mysterious looking photo

Stunningly beautiful .....the stories those trees could tell! I would LOVE to be there at night to watch it come alive with all the animals. My idea of paradise. ❤🌲🐶🐿🐦🐺🐁 Thank you Peaklass....once again you have brought me solace through your 📷! 👍❤🤗

It certainly does have an eerie kind of beauty. Thank you for sharing this lovely photo.

O those beautiful trees, they really are special, definitely not in the dark!

If tree's could tell a story. I love trees.

It’s quite otherworldly!

Have we been here, Anna George?

Beautiful photo and well captured Peaklass... great stuff 😊

What a stunning picture oh how I yearn to be back in the Peak District

Thank you for sharing this beautiful picture.

The kind of shot that makes the heart yearn for travel. X

That sky so compliments the photo 😍

Beautiful photo Peaklass! I have photos on my own photography page on here from Ashford In The Water and surrounding area when my first wife and myself visited the area in September 2003. Such a beautiful part of England!

Beautiful evening sky!

A LONG ROAD AHEAD • Sometimes Winter makes for the best scenes, with bare branches and deep shadows. And I love the fact that this lane above Grindleford never loses the leaves that gather in deep drifts along its verges, they bring a lovely bit of colour.📍 Grindleford, Peak District, England

Beautiful Peaklass... Until I opened up all of your message it looked like Gandalf rather than Grindleford 😂 Tbh this autumnal shot is reminiscent of Lord of the Rings 😊 Nice one.

Beautiful picture love that road! 😊

Looking so beautiful you wouldn't notice the walk. Love the colours. 😊

The light and the autumn leaves make it a fantastic photo.

One of my favourite lane’s 🍁

A beautiful and peaceful atmosphere photo

You have a gift for capturing a moment! Each photograph that I've seen has been like balm to my mind, allowing me to relax and imagine I'm right there inside the photo. Although I live in a seaside town on the edge of the countryside, I'm a country girl at heart. I'm never more happy than being out in the countryside with animals and surrounded by nature. Thank you for your amazing contribution to wellness!! ❤🙏🌲🌱💐📷🐏🐶🐎🐇🐿🐦🐑❤

You find the most beautiful places Peaklass 😍

Been talking about going to this place soon is there nice places to long walks

AUTUMN BEAUTY • I hope you’ll forgive me a flashback to last autumn, in the always-stunning Wyming Brook. I went there a few days ago and it’s full of beautiful Spring greenery, but you just can’t beat the autumn colours there.📍 Wyming Brook, Peak District, England

Oh it's so beautiful. I went there many years ago on a school trip. We didn't have many school trips in those days and I have very happy memories of it. (That was in1959)

Wonderful photo with so much depth, from the copper beech in foreground, to the sheep, the group of trees standing tall, the church n the distant hills. So beautiful!

Lovely photo.

Thank you for sharing your lovely photo. 💕

It made a great location for St John Rivers’ house in the Jane Eyre film too (2011)!
