The Road Less Travelled
The road less travelled- No, I'm not talking about the self help book of the same name, although you could claim taking photos just for myself on the way back from a paying job is self-help I suppose ;-)
Sometimes I decide not to go the usual route to places and avoid the toll roads and busy motorways. Last week was no exception with a choice between a trip along the M6 and forking out £11 on tolls or taking the scenic route through the snowy Peak District up to Stockport.
I'm always on the lookout for sellable photos, stock or otherwise during my travels and sometimes see things I feel I have to photograph just for myself. These two were both taken from inside my nice warm car with the windows down and briefly stopped in a layby at Bottomhouse near Leek. The sheep were on one side of the car and the dry stone wall against a snow-covered steep hill on the other side. I guess I will stick them with my stock collection in any case, but I enjoyed taking them during a 10 minute coffee break.
