Mother Cap

Mother Cap is a very large boulder which sits in a prominent position about 500m north of the Surprise View car park near Hathersage.

This was taken at midnight by the light of the full moon. The warm orange on the horizon is the glow of Sheffield's city lights. The stars are very clearly visible in larger versions of the image.
