Where the path splits

This photo was taken at Derwent Edge in the Peak District.

ISO 800 12mm f/20 1/400sec

I have applied very little in the way of post-processing to this photo because it was a beautiful scene that didn’t really need enhancement in my opinion. Β This walk, that we did over the summer, was a riot of blooming heather contrasted with the rocky terrain and the blue of the sky. I chose to take a photo at this particular spot because I found the split in the trail to be visually interesting. It was one of those walks where I had to purposely put my camera away, to that I would also just enjoy the moment. I’m grateful to have this shot though.

Does this photo appeal to you? Can you name a place you’ve visited where you had to put your camera away in order to enjoy the moment? Feel free to leave a comment below.

  1. I am not much of a photographer to begin with, but I visited Chakrata (India) and there was a hill-top which had views to die for. Peeping down from the top, it felt like we were on the clouds with some surprising stretch of land beneath us. No one bothered to click a picture there and we all just decided to take our separate walks around the area πŸ™‚


  2. Love the image. How awesome is it when a photo is such perfection that little post processing is required? Lately, I’ve been trying to take out my camera less and just enjoy the moment. Trying to have camera time and non-camera time. I laugh to myself when’s great moment happens during my β€˜no camera’ time thinking β€˜if a great moment remains unphotographed, did it really happen?’ 😁

  3. The photo would be a fine illustration (for those willing to tamper a little with the wording) of Robert Frost’s classic poem *The Road Not Taken*, as in

            Two paths diverged on a blooming heath,
            Two paths diverged on a heath, and Iβ€”
            I took the one less traveled by,
            And that has made all the difference.


  4. This reminds me of the phrase a fork in the road. I’d say the right path is the more leisurely one as it looks like it veers off to calm plains. If the sliver of space wasn’t there, maybe they’d be more mystery around the image 😊
