Local dog walk around Matlock, Derbyshire

Having seen this little walk a few times whilst passing I have never actually been up despite being on my doorstep. Darwin forest lies on the moors of Derbyshire and offers some amazing woodlands which are perfect for autumn shots when their leaves start to drop, with the right light you can get some amazing “outdoor” photos. So this weekend with rain clouds passing and the odd break of lovely light in between I was determined to get up there and with a bit of bribery I managed to get my “not so little any more” son away from his iPad and out with our little dog for a wonder.

There are some super spots and lots of them, with lovely long trails and high trees to give a lovely smooth background this is a perfect spot for them outdoor family shoots. £10 lighter and another rain cloud rolling in we headed home with a nice set of portraits for the wall, an hour well spent!
