And **drumroll please** this may just be my favourite image I have ever posted. It is it SO IS. Higger Tor was listed as within the city limits of Sheffield, South Yorkshire; which I did not believe because I just KNEW it was in Derbyshire! I KNEW IT. Well, I was wrong, of course, as I generally am when I’m dead certain about something; but in my defence it is 200 metres (220 yards) from the Derbyshire border.
A tor is a rock outcrop rising abruptly from surrounding smooth slopes of a rounded hill. The word is also used for the hills themselves in the South West of England, where the term originated; particularly the high points of Dartmoor in Devon and Bodmin Moor in Cornwall.
These colours make me swoon (the purples!) the composition is perfect, and the lighting is breathtaking. I do so hope you like it, but if you do not,
that is too bad for youthen I am quite sorry to hear it. (Dinky Do’s on flickr)
