    Hi All,

    I am fortunate enough to live on the fringes of one of the UK's prettiest and most visited National Parks; the Peak District.

    I spend many an hour "yomping" over the hills and moors. However, it's at this time of year when the Park really starts to come alive with colour; it is Heather Season. It is as if someone has taken a brush and painted the moors purple...

    Once again, the little X10 proves it's worth.

    Thanks for looking. I have also posted this on the FujiXspot site, so apologies if you see this in duplicate.

    It certainly is Dave, although I can also say the same about Arizona!

    I was wondering what Heather the Vet was doing in the Peak District!

    Beautiful countryside you have on your doorstep Neil.

    Haha I was expecting to see something about HeatherTheVet too, but that's a beautiful sight! (I'm sure HeatherTheVet is too, but hopefully not as purple...)

    If you want a picture of HeatherTheVet does her thing you'd better have a strong stomach!

    I've found an acceptable one. Bad photo but good moment, just after my first caesarian a few years ago. All the puppies survived.

    Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos!
    A shame that we only made it up there once while we were living in the UK...
    Love the colours in these shots!
