So, I had a weekend to myself last weekend and watched on social media as I missed an opportunity to grab another cloud inversion in the Peak District on the Saturday. I didn't get up early due to a late night on the Friday writing a blog post, checking out new music and drinking a bit of wine. With that regret as motivation I made a commitment to get out and about on the Sunday morning hoping for repeat conditions and another inversion opportunity.
To add a bit of interest to the morning I decided to try and film a few behind the scenes action videos, something of how these sunrise mornings unfold for me. If you know me, follow me on Snapchat (@dappadanboy) or have read some of my blog posts you may expect that these my behind the scenes 'VLOG' had it's fair sprinkling of sarcasm, silliness and bad accents along the way. Still I figured I could at least practice my on camera style, voice, content and video production skills.
The morning didn't really unfold as hoped, there was no cloud inversion or even any particular special conditions to write a blog about (hmm that's what I'm doing now). I planned to set off towards Ladybower from where I could assess the conditions and then maybe head to Castleton or maybe stay around that area and climb Win Hill for a different view of the cloud inversion. As soon as I made it out of the Sheffield boundary towards Ladybower I could see there wasn't a jot of mist, fog, cloud or other white substances in the sky. I decided therefore to head to the always photographically generous Bole Hill Quarry and here's what unfolded wandering around in the trees on my first ever VLOG on Youtube ............
