My back garden.

These shots were taken up at Errwood Reservoir in the Goyt Valley.

It was dusk and a mist had descended over the hills. It was eerily calm, quiet and beautiful.

Followers of my Instagram account would be forgiven for thinking that I live in some sort of moorland idyll judging by the photos I post. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. I live in a mediocre suburb of Stockport in north west England. However, I am extremely fortunate to have the aforementioned idyll on my doorstep within a half-hour drive. And even luckier to have a car to get me there.

Many of us yearn for foreign climes, but I have discovered so many beautiful places close to where I live.

When I say ‘I discovered’, I think someone else might’ve been there before me. Judging by the roads. And the reservoir. And signposts. And farm buildings.

  1. Oh Dave, these are spectacular.
    Hope you’re as calm and tranquil as they are. x

  2. Magical shots. I followed the Goyt Valley link and watched the video there. What a wonderful place to get away from it all.

  3. I know this feeling of refuge and peace in local places tucked in among the everyday. What a beautiful place you’ve pictured.

    Lovely image David with thought provoking words to reflect on
    I too have discovered Errwood but not for a while.
    Maybe soon?

  5. Interesting pictures, beautiful would be the wrong word, but worth looking at, let’s say special.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend
