Snow in the Peak DistrictImages of snow-covered Peak District landscapes by local professional photographers are on show at Bakewell visitor centre.

Hoar-frost, wind-carved snow drifts, sculptural trees, as well as popular beauty spots such as Robin Hood's Stride, near Birchover, and the viaduct at Monsal Dale, feature in this seasonal exhibition.
 
The photographs capture wintry sunrises and sunsets that occur over wild-looking moorlands and remote stone circles that many people do not get to see. They are the work of a dedicated group of award-winning photographers Ian Daisley, Graham Dunn, Karen Frenkel, Chris Gilbert and Alex Hyde.

The exhibition is on throughout December until January 31.

Photographer Chris Gilbert said: "The unique climate of the Peak District always presents surprises and opportunities but nothing beats a bright afternoon walk with the camera, crunching through the snow on the edge of Kinder Scout.

"I hope people will come along to look at the exhibition and discover how magical the national park is at this time of year."

Sales of photographs from the exhibition generate income for the Peak District National Park. Bakewell visitor centre also showcases the work of the Peak District's finest artists and craftspeople and a share of profits from their sales goes to the national park.

Housed in Bakewell's historic Old Market Hall, the exhibition is in a fully accessible gallery at the visitor centre. It is open every day, except Christmas Day and Boxing Day, from 10.30am to 4.30pm.

Information on the photography gallery and the photographers can be seen at www.peakgallery.co.uk.
