Peak District – Wild Camping above the clouds on Kinder Scout

This weeks mini adventure will officially go down as my favourite ever solo wilds camp in the glorious Peak District, all the conditions were perfect to make it a night to remember. I arrived in Edale to clear skies and as I walked up Kinder Scout the mist / cloud began to roll up the valley and over the Great Ridge. I spent a mesmerising 7-8 hours time lapsing everything I could see from cloud inversions to the moon and stars. If every wild camp in the future was exactly like this, then I would be very happy indeed 🙂

The music in the video is by myself “Dean Read – This Place Is Calling You”. Footage shot with a Canon EOS 7D DSLR with a Canon EF 50mm – f/1.4 USM Lens, a RODE VideoMic Go Microphone with a RODE Dead Cat Wind Protector. I used my Canon 550D which has been superseded by the <a href=”http://Canon 700D, I also used my GoPro Hero 3 for some of the time-lapse and edited in iMovie.

      1. Hi. Do you think Kinder is doable in late April, I’m a novice hill walker and would love to give it a go then. Cheers


      2. Hi Hardy, Kinder Scout is definitely doable in April. providing you have good waterproofs, boots and warm kit you should be fine.
