Above the Clouds

Photographers taking in the sunrise, above the clouds. The valley below is full of fog, caused by a temperature inversion, warm air trapping the fog on the valley floor. This image was taken at Chrome Hill in the Peak District National Park on an amazing September morning in 2017. I had been chasing conditions like this for a long time, but the forecast hadn’t predicted it. However, I decided to take a chance, and for once it paid off. The valley fog was perfect for the “Dragons Backbone” shot that I want, a shot that is also within this gallery. The fog then thickened really quickly, covering Parkhouse Hill within a matter of minutes, leaving me with only one option, to head up Chrome Hill. Thankfully, this was the reward for the lung busting climb. A sea of dense valley fog, as far as the eye could see.
