Artist's Description

On a recent meet up with fellow bubbler and good friend Jason Connolly in the Derbyshire Peak District, we decided to go to Derwent Reservoir which is the middle of the three reservoirs in the Upper Derwent Valley, in Derbyshire’s Peak District National Park, England. The waters of the River Derwent runs through the valley and deposits first in the Howden reservoir, then the Derwent, and then finally into the Ladybower reservoir. All of them are surrounded by beautiful woodlands and is particularly beautiful during the late summer and autumn season. Our first stop was here, along the north side road. We parked in a lay by and walked down to the water’s edge. The sky wasn’t particularly good during the day, but we did manage to take some really nice shots (just look at Jason’s portfolio). I was taken by these lovely trees that edged the bank. With the water level so low, the bank is revealed and the root systems of the trees are exposed. They are so fabulous to look at, how they seem to wave around one another. This tangled mess of chaos brings the trees stability, strength, and life.

This is a HDR image combining 5 bracketed shots using Photomatix Pro for Macs. Slight adjustments in contrast and tone were done using the enhanced details tool.
