    Great piccies Ken!

    Where were you camped to get the views of Mam Tor?

    We love it there but, typically, it's only a few miles from "home base" so we forget to go!!!:Sad:

    Thanks Ken!

    We've usually stayed on the Edale side of the "shivering mountain"! Either Coopers Farm in the centre of Edale or one of the others in the valley.

    Sheep still hanging around at Hollins Cross but they didn't get our sarnies. :Eeek:

    We hope to go to Edale next visit. :thumb:

    I notice that you use sticks. These have become very common in the last decade. First it was one, and now the manufacturers of these sticks tell that two is twice as good, well they would wouldn't they? :BigGrin:

    We do a lot of walking and I have used an old thumb-stick in the past, especially when we have small streams to ford, but I find it just got in the way (of the photography) Now on the hills, and on level walks, it appears everyone has two of these sticks. Why do you have them? What is the benefit? Thanks

    I often take a telescopic monopod with me on a walk - helps with the dodgy knee and help with keeping the camera steady :Smile:

    Nice pics Ken, thanks. I used to love the view from the road below Mam Tor across to Castleton at Christmas after dark. The traders always used to put Xmas trees covered in lights outside their shops, all down the High Street - lovely.

    With regard to poles Jim, I use one, Kay two and to be honest, I'm not sure I'd be able to walk some of the routes I do without them, especially coming downhill. We came off Cadair last weekend by a fairly tortuous route, having gone up a via a rock route and my knees were really hurting. I was able to put a lot of weight on the stick and it helped big time. On the flat or uphill you seem to be able to get a push from the sticks which helps considerably. I wouldn't be without them now.

    A friend who is an ex army PTI says that walking with 2 poles is better from an exercise point of view, as using both arms and legs works the cardiovascular system more than just walking.

    I sure as hell aint gonner argue with him.

    I don't Jim, Steph uses them as she has a dodgy knee at times. Must admit tho they are a godsend when coming down a steep, slippery and rocky hill. :thumb: I have a Manfrotto monopod which doubles up as a walking pole when I feel the need. :BigGrin:
