Colours of Kinder Scout!

Last Sunday, as our tribute to National Parks week, we walked from Barber Booth and up onto Kinder Scout, the highest point in the Peak District National Park, in Derbyshire.

It was a dry day, mostly, but up on Kinder we felt very close to the lowering clouds.  I'd never been up on top and was very saddened by the terrible erosion, but amazed by the rock formations and lovely muted colours.

Here is one of the wonderful rock formations that inspired me to produce this colour palette!

I think your photo's are fantastic and I love the way you pull the colours out.

I love your colour palettes! How do you produce them? Do you use a special software?

Thanks for both of your nice comments.

Currently I use Photoshop Elements, but prior to getting that I used Photoplus from Serif. It's really easy to do on any photo editing software if there is a colour picker.

I find it very rewarding to do it as an exercise, as it makes me look at the images in more depth for both colour and texture, which I use a lot in my work.

Best wishes

Alison
