'The Dark Peak' - Kinder Scout, Peak District, Derbyshire

'The Dark Peak' - Kinder Scout, Peak District, Derbyshire


Often referred to as ‘Divine Light’ or ‘Paths to Heaven’, crepuscular rays can occur when objects such as mountain peaks or clouds partially shadow the sun’s rays and airborne compounds scatter the sunlight making the rays visible due to diffraction, reflection and scattering. Appearing to radiate from a given point in the sky and streaming through gaps in the clouds, they are a wonderful phenomenon to observe. They were caught here on a moody, late winter afternoon near to the mysterious Mermaid’s Pool on the bleak moorlands of Kinder Scout, in the dark peak.
