Giant's Sunset by danUK86 Giant's Sunset by danUK86
EDIT - Oct 16/10/16 Removed border, larger, reworked image.

Sunset at the Roaches ridge, looking towards the Cheshire Plains.

The Roaches is a beautiful gritstone ridge, covered in heather and lots of cool rock formations due to erosion.
I spent 3 hours scoping out the ridge for an ideal spot for the sunset to light it up. I found this spot with what appears to be a rocky giant enjoying the view (sure you can see it, look for the nose!) and set up, waiting an hour for a few precious minutes when the sun sat between the clouds and the horizon.


Peak District National Park, England

The comp is great. The red tone and glow in the sky works well.  The elements come together harmoniously.
