This was an eventful journey from Buxton to Whaley Bridge on the 11th of August along the A5004, during which I had a very nasty bike accident in the vicinity of the reservoir bends. Spent the night in Stepping Hill and Wythenshawe hospitals after hitting the road at nearly 30MPH! Suffice to say that I didn’t quite meet all of my photo objectives on this run. This was probably the last shot I took before the accident and was looking forward to reaching even more scenic views further down the road. I do love this landscape though, it is often quite dramatic and prone to turbulent weather, great skies and all of those interesting and exciting attributes of high altitude locations.
