Tarn Shelf Fagus

Once a year, the deciduous beech that surrounds the Tarn Shelf turns from green to a beautiful yellow. I’ve walked into the Tarn Shelf a few times but always managed to miss out on this limited opportunity. Knowing it was the right time of the year, I set off early (7am) hoping for pretty reflections on the Tarn and to avoid the crowds (60 people as we left at 11am). It was a cold but nice morning with fog throughout the Derwent Valley.  Unfortunately once reaching the Tarn it was quite breezy so this ruled out any hope of capturing the Tarn reflecting surrounding fagus.

First four shots were captured with a Canon 24-70 2.8 whilst the remaining with a Canon 50 1.4
