‘Fire & Ice’ at Chrome Hill, Peak District by Jermaine Reid

We asked on Social Media for your best winter snow images and the response was amazing! This photo by Jermaine Reid captures a dramatic sunrise over Parkhouse Hill and Chrome Hill in the Peak District

Parkhouse Hill and Chrome hill are 'reef knolls', a huge pile of shell and reef crushed on an ancient seabed to form a calcium based rock. They tend to be harder than the surrounding rocks so are left exposed as they weather away. It's one of the few places in Britain where you can experience a 'double sunset'. If you are in just the right place at the right time of the year, the sun will set behind one hill, appear on the other side, and then set again.
