The Derbyshire countryside and Peak District National Park have some of the best locations for landscape photography in the country. There are deep valleys, remains of a coral reef, beautiful ravines and some truly expansive views. There’re so many diverse and different places to capture in the Peak District but we thought we’d start you off with the top ten locations for landscape photography in the Peak District, just as a starting point…
Winnats Pass, Hope Valley
Winnats Pass, whether it be the dramatic view from the top or the winding road below, has to be of one the most photogenic parts of the Peak District. This limestone gorge was once, hundreds of millions of year ago, completely submerged under water, which is one of the reasons why it has such a unique feel to it. The craggy rocks and vast valley below make for some seriously dramatic shots.
This viewpoint captures the natural beauty of the Peak District perfectly –it’s a place that allows photographers to capture expansive, dramatic or even whimsical shots.
Winnats Pass is best accessed from the village of Castleton, where there’s a pay & display car park at the Visitor Centre. Castleton is also a great place for some pub grub!
