It’s been almost a year since I made any kind of serious attempt at taking a photograph. During that time, neither my head nor my heart has really been in it. In the past few weeks, I have been trying to feel my way back into photography, albeit cautiously.
Last month, I spent six days driving alone through the Peak District of England, exploring the area and looking for subjects to photograph.
Among the most elegant subjects I discovered were these two old stone barns, called the Staden Barns, outside the town of Hartington in Derbyshire.
Straddling a narrow country lane lined by dry stone walls, it took a lot of searching and a long, arduous hike to locate these beautiful barns. I finally found them high in the hills south-east of the town. They were worth both the search and the hike.
