• Many walkers enjoy taking photographs while engaged in their walks.
  • In a bid to encourage a two-way sharing of experiences when out following my walks, you are invited to email any shots you are proud of, or would like to share with a wider audience through my website.
  • If you have feedback on the walks themselves, then please do get back to me in the same manner, as feedback is hugely valued as a means of keeping the guides vital and up-to-date for their regular revisions.

The following fifteen images were sent in by Steve Keeble.

Steve has clearly 'discovered' the magic of the Dark Peak. It is now two years since he first purchased my aged High Peak Walks guide and made his first tentative steps onto the hign plateau. He says, with evident pleasure, that he has gained sufficient confidence to devise his own moorland ways. A big thank you Steve for becoming the first reader to offer your evocative images to this dedicated space.
