On this day, the intended hike was pretty arduous, with many ups, downs and inevitable challenges around every corner.
Maybe, I wasn't feeling quite up for it or the changing weather conditions played more than a significant role.
The clouds were mighty impressive though and filled full of rain. In between those Spring showers, the sun shone brightly and illuminated the landscape all around, if only for a limited time.
I love days like this and the constant battle between my human self and the elements of nature. Often you feel like give up, cutting the day short, if only for a pint and a pub lunch.
Nevertheless, you plod on, see it through and somehow make that final goal even more worthwhile.
Amongst this drivel, there's a message in there somewhere... #englishcountryside #getoutside #countryside #smartphonephotography #thisprettyengland #peakdistrict
