Chrome Hill

August 14, 2013  •  4 Comments

Had a few hours out toward Chrome Hill near Buxton, what a stunning place. The hills of Wheeldon, Parkhouse and Chrome dominate the upper Dove valley. With real ridges and outcrops of limestone (coral reef) they certainly have a real mountain look about them. The place makes for a great day out and is rarely busy. I love this side of the Peak district, think it has much more to offer than the popular dark Peak. Less traffic and less tourists ! 

So off with th X pro 1 2 lenses the 14mm and the 55-200, ideal combinations for Landscape work. Although dodging fierce showers and protecting the gear took some doing, the Fuji just works so well with landscapes. The colour rendition and the detail it resolves just leaves me gobsmacked. All the years I have been shooting images, never has a camera given me such satisfaction in its ability to deliver the files I want.

Love the way the x pro even captures the Ram taking a leak ........ Now that's sharp and detailed for all the doubters ;)
