"It was sunsets that taught me that beauty sometimes only lasts for a couple of moments, and it was sunrises that showed me that all it takes is patience to experience it all over again." — A.J. Lawless
During my #weekinthepeak I saw 3 sunrises and 6 sunsets! If you can push yourself to go out to these places at those unsociable times you really won't forget it! There's something special about being in these places when the light is magical!
Tonight it was fun darting between the various rock formations and setting up sunburst shots as the sun was setting!

Another glorious day!
I went back to #derwentedge I wanted to walk more of the edge as I've only ever done up to this rock formation. The views up here are phenomenonal and if you crave peace and quiet when you go hiking then you'll get it up here! I feel totally blissed out tonight!
A little bit about these rock formations from Wikipedia -
Derwent Edge has several examples of unusually shaped gritstone tors which have been formed by the actions of wind, rain and frost over many centuries. These tors have been named over the years by local residents and have now been officially titled on Ordnance Survey maps. These include the Cakes of Bread, the Coach and Horses and the Salt Cellar.
This is the #saltcellar and it's alot bigger then it looks here! Notice how the area isn't as vibrant without the heather as my other picture on my feed. This location is amazing now but when the heather comes out it's outstanding!
My baby girl just turned 1 🐥 So here is a throw back to one of our feeds last summer in one of our favourite spots - Win Hill in the Peak District.
And few facts about the faces behind the account:
- I’m Irish (authentic #derrygirl ☘️) but we live in Sheffield, England - The beautiful Peak District is on our doorstep so find us there
- Martha and I have an awesome man in our lives and we all look after each other
- I’m a paediatrician and love my work. Still getting used to the family/work balancing act
- I like to run
- Martha likes to dance
- Yes, still breastfeeding - I’ve been surprised and delighted by the response to scenic breastfeeds and I love that so many of you are proud to take your baby to beautiful places and feed them.

Yesterday’s walk on the High Peak Trail. One we’ll be visiting again with the bikes.
Logan has spent every walk this weekend climbing rocks and trees, this walk was no different. No mention of tablet or phones, been lovely to get away from it all
Still to come in April... The launch of our next guest exhibition by the Derbyshire Artists' Guild 96.30 to 8.30pm on Friday 26th); a breath of Shetland air from the brilliant Barry Nisbet on Saturday 27th (tickets from the gallery or at https://www.wegottickets.com/event/466582) and for anyone who loves to draw there's Gallery Interactive on Monday 29th (book at the gallery). We hope to see you soon!
Because you'll never remember the days you spent stuck in work.
So get up and live! 😍
Awesome wild camping weekend with @hiker_kay and Georgia! ⛰☀️⛺️
Kinder Downfall didn’t provide quite as much water as we had hoped, but offered a pretty good view out over Kinder Resevoir.
The trusty Sigg bottle looks great, really durable and allows me to fill up anywhere.
Using the Source life straw, which fits straight onto the bottle, allows for drinking on the go when you’re unsure if the water quality.
A Friday with no work = Hiking, and such great weather for it!
Circular 10miles walk from Barber Booth up Kinder Scout and around the ridge to The Nab, down to Edale for a pint of coke and over the fields back to the car
The last day of a long weekend. Make the most of today and drop in for afternoon tea, with a glass of champagne too if you are feeling your weekend needs an extravagant punctuation point to finish it off!
