The Yorkshire Dales

The Yorkshire Dales are perched on the top of the Pennines and it attracts thousands of visitors a year to its limestone features, valleys, peaks, rivers and waterfalls.

I fell in love with Wharfedale when I was a young child as I spent hours with my Yorkshire relatives around Bolton Abbey, Kettlewell and Malham.  In the past year I have been introduced to the delights of Swaledale with its intimate valleys, industrial ruins and multitudes of spectacular waterfalls.

I also love the western side of the national park with it's magnificent limestone features and abundant waterfalls.

Most of my photographs are from these areas of The Dales and were taken whilst out walking and enjoying the scenery rather than with the intention of taking photographs. Which I do anyway!
