Icy Pond in Peak District, Derbyshire

I never thought I would cycle to somewhere to take a photograph and find it frozen over, but that is exactly what has happened here. Taken last week at the top of Bleaklow in the Peak District. The pond in this picture above is quite small, probably 30 feet across at the most and so it probably doesn’t have an official name. Living in the city of Manchester I rarely see frost or frozen over ponds so I had to take its picture (you take photographs of anything if you just spent well over an hour pedalling uphill to get pictures). The rock in the foreground seems to add an extra focal point and really make this picture something I am proud to share with you. It will be great to go back into Derbyshire and explore more of the Peak District National Park as soon as possible.
