Hope and Edale Valley

Hope & Edale certainly win the prize for being the most dramatic! Especially at sunrise and you’re fortunate enough to witness a temperature inversion cloaking the valleys in mist. I have seen many inversions over the years, they really do take your breath away. The 360 degree view from the summit of Mam Tor is one of my favourite views where you can take in Kinder, Edale, Hope & Winnats Pass from this one spot. Winnats Pass is without doubt my favourite viewpoint. With the right light and a good inversion i feel like a kid in a sweet shop! The walk along it’s edge has many places to photograph from and almost seems like they were created for photographers with little sections that jut out. Then there is The Great Ridge which divides the two valleys. The views along this spine like ridge are awesome, and the ridge itself is great to photograph especially during an inversion.
