Pretty waterfall in the Valley of Desolation

Not been able to get out much lately, so digging out the oldies

this is inside the main part of the ruins of the 12th century priory at Bolton Abbey,yorkshire,uk, sadly I wasn't able to get any more shots as it was packed out with visitors, people always in the shots!!

Will go back midweek soon, try to get some more shots.

Hope everybody had a good christmas

Taken again in 'The Valley Of Desolation', Bolton Abbey estate, Yorkshire,uk.

These falls are way of the beaten track and are very well hidden by the trees,foliage and also the shape of the valley; because it is so well hidden it is quite a dark spot. This shot was a 5 minute exposure, 2,3 and 4 minute exposures came out to dark.


A brief break in the clouds at just the right time for a photo of the ruins at Bolton Abbey in Yorkshire.

Built in 1154, and in use until the dissolution in 1539, it now stands in picturesque and photogenic Wharfe Valley, attracting many crowds of visitors.

By getting there as it opened, I was able to avoid the busloads of school parties that descend at this time of year!

A trip over to Bolton Abbey with Steve and Ray found a sprinkling of snow and some decent winter light. Enjoyed the trip lads thanks.

Another from the archive.......still waiting for an MRI scan, then hopefully fusion.....then hopefully my life back. Thanks for all the good wishes and again sorry for my lack of comments

A shot taken along the circular walk alongside the River Wharfe on the Bolton Abbey estate, north Yorkshire, uk.

It is a shot that reminds me of a glorious summer day and a great day out with 'the wife', Gillian...

Not sure if the house has any historical significance or not, but looks a lovely place to live..

Bolton Abbey is an estate in Wharfedale in North Yorkshire, England, which takes its name from the ruins of the 12th-century Augustinian monastery—now generally known as Bolton Priory.

One of my favourite places and on a hot day like today it seemed to be everybody elses too

Taken in 'The Valley Of Desolation', Bolton Abbey, Yorkshire,uk. Shot handheld as setting up the tripod not viable at this point in the landscape, I did try to set up for a long exposure shot with the tripod in front of the fall but there was so much spray coming off the water that the camera and lens got soaked in no time.

Beautiful sunrise at Bolton Abbey, first job for Devonshire gamekeeper, - clear the stepping stones of snagged debris

This was shot on the banks of The River Wharfe,,Bolton Abbey, Yorkshire, uk.

The fast flowing waters of The Strid at Bolton Abbey after heavy rainfall.

A beautiful morning on Barden Moor with a tuch of frost.

I finally got out yesterday and managed to escape what has been a hectic few weeks.


It was only a couple of hours and I couldn't quite get the angle I was after here on this section of the River Strid, but I loved it.

Bolton Abbey looking across the River Wharfe in the autumn sunshine.

The Road goes ever on and on

Down from the door where it began.

Now far ahead the Road has gone,

And I must follow, if I can,

Pursuing it with eager feet,

Until it joins some larger way

Where many paths and errands meet.

And whither then? I cannot say.

Managed to mess up all my other shots of her on this occasion.


Many thanks to all who comment, fave or just enjoy looking, very much appreciated folks!

In this time of global uncertainty, when Half a million people are about to lose their livelihoods, I think it only correct that everybody should help if they can,, so for my shortly to be announced 2011 program of one day workshops (the next few days) I’m reducing the cost off a day workshop to 75 pounds. There will still be very small groups of 5 people and up to 8 hours in the field of inspirational landscape tuition with plenty of one to one tutoring. So why not treat your loved ones to a Christmas present to remember (gift cards will be available) and offer them workshops in some inspirational locations, Malham (summer and autumn), Whitby (winter), Bolton Abbey (spring, summer, winter and autumn), Lakes (autumn) and even Photoshop for photographers (winter, summer) (@Bradford university and up to 10 people). Ho yes don’t take my word for it, here are some testimonials (and here) from past workshop participants and here is the landscape inspired site ...I’m also available for one to one tuition, and welcome small groups for bespoke training needs...End of ad...


Anyway, this shot refers to the last posts text when it comes to my little darlings on a photo expedition...
