First Light at Curbar Edge

First Light at Curbar Edge - Landscape Photography
Arrived at Curbar Edge at just before 6am this morning in the hope of a decent sunrise. No sooner was I out of the car park, I spotted a red deer stag in the fields next to the path (at least, I think it was a stag - it was still pretty dark). I know of red deer on Big Moor and Leash Fen but have never seen them on this side of White Edge before. Once on the edge, I could see quite a few over in the fields.

The sun made me wait for about an hour after rising before finally breaking through. First over Birchin and Gardom's Edge, then finally sweeping up onto Curbar. There was a definite autumnal feel creeping into the morning. There are still patches of heather in bloom but it is now past it's best and you can feel summer beginning to drain from the landscape. Fast moving low cloud meant that the bursts of light were frequent but brief.
