Alan Barrett Images | Intimate Landscapes | Black Clough

Black Clough runs off Bleaklow, in the Peak District. The water is stained yellow/orange by the peat through which it has been filtered on the moors, and the water in turn has coloured the bedrock of the stream with some wonderful colours.

Photographed on a sunny day, it looks as if there is a light behind the waterfalls. On cloudy days, the absence of reflected light allows the colours in the water to become more apparent. A magical place to spend several hours wandering upstream.
