Conquered the Napoleon Bridge 💪🚴🌉 Built in 1812, during the French emperor's conquest of Slovenian territory. Those four years of Napoleon's reign over our lands are known as the period of Illyrian provinces. The Provinces encompassed modern-day Croatia, Slovenia, Gorizia, and parts of Austria.
Saturday morning we returned back to the poppy field once more. With the alarm ringing at 02:50 we were soon on our way hoping for better light than before.
On arrival there was one more photographer a pleasant chap called Dave ( DPS photography). After a brief chat with Dave I made my way along the gentle path knowing that this was my planned image. The light although was still quite dark was lightening all the time. By now the birdsong had intensified. A cloud inversion was forming across to my left. Gently flowing across the river Derwent before sadly disappearing as the Sun was rising. Taking a few more steps as well as walking slowly through the long stems. My boots were dampening as the water clung to my trousers similar to paddling through a stream. Although it wasn’t too cold in fact this was a very relaxing temperature by now my legs and feet where definitely paying the price.
It was time to set up the tripod. I had arrived at a elevation of which I could just see the top of Barlow down in the valley. Focusing down the subtle path. As well as boosting the colours with the kase polariser and reversed grad filter. It was time to grab this image before everything got to light. Overall something very special. Special to see poppy field in the Peak District. As well as a special way to finish off photographing these iconic flowers. Wishing you all a wonderful Monday morning.
