Hilary Backhouse's photo on the High Peak Trail to Cromford.
Hilary Backhouse's photo on the High Peak Trail to Cromford.

This striking image shows bold silhouetted trees against an autumnal backdrop.

It was sent in to us by Mercury reader Hilary Backhouse, who said: “It was taken walking down the steep slope on the High Peak Trail to Cromford.

“The sun just happened to be behind the trees.”

We would like to include more photographs of our landscape and architecture on this page and are inviting readers to submit pictures for use each week. Please also tell us a bit about the picture.

Anyone who gets one of their pictures printed will receive a set of First Edition collection stamps from Royal Mail.

Email your pictures of Derbyshire and the Peak District to Views Thru A Lens at news@matlockmercury.co.uk or call in to the office in Firs Parade.
