A trip to the Peak District prompted a few short countryside hikes, while giving me a chance to practice my photography. On the very first day, I took this photo – as a bit of a scene setter, so to speak. What I didn’t notice was this character in the background of this shot – nor did either of other two family members with me. How we missed it, I don’t know – perhaps we were using all our concentration on keeping our footing as it was very muddy and slippy under foot.
