Snow covered Froggatt Edge, Derbyshire

"Path through the Trees", Froggatt Edge, Derbyshire.

A late afternoon sun providing some wonderful cast shadows across the snow lying on Froggatt Edge in the Derbyshire Peak District. The foot path runs most of the length of the edge as it heads towards Curbar Edge. The edge runs parallel to the right hand side, just beyond the small bushes to the very right of the painting.

It's a wonderful area for finding subjects to paint, whatever the time of year, with areas of woodland, mixed areas like the painting above through to the outcrops of rock formations scattered along the edge while not forgetting the local sheep that can be seen grazing.
