Bole Hill Quarry

This is the view from Bole Hill Quarry looking out over Grindleford. It is a popular Peak District location for rock climbers and I did this painting sat on a rock about 40 feet up. I had to laugh when a I saw a couple walking along the path in the picture and lady said to her partner "Look up there. There's a man on a Laptop!" - I suppose my pochade box is a sort of low-tech computer :)
