A few quick edits from yesterday at Derwent Dam. Well worth the long drive up from Kent: a privilege to be there.

Fantastic set Anthony,definitely worth the drive up there.The Anniversary has certainly been well covered by the media,just been listening to Chris Evans on Radio 2.Love him or hate him,he is one lucky fella,he is just about to depart in the Lanc' for the flight to Biggin Hill

What a lovely set of pictures, Anthony. I thought you were mad to drive Kent - Peak Dist and back in a day, but the images that you have posted shows it well worthwhile. Like ciaranchef, I have to say that the Lanc topside shot is a stunner. Well done!

Dear all,

Thanks so much for your comments. Much appreciated.

Talking of people who are completely mad, after the flying was finished as I was coming down the hill, there was one lovely moment. As I passed a young woman who was talking to someone with a camera I overhead "You photographers are indeed strange people. I'm going to tweet that when I get back to civilisation." Strange people? Can't argue with that.

Just one more as well:

Cheers,

Anthony.
