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

The sun rises over a peak casting a golden glow across a valley in North Yorkshire.

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.

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

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

It rained a lot, and snowed a bit on the drive up, but a little bit of sun came out as well

side door of bolton priory's church of st mary's & st cuthbert

bolton abbey was founded in 1151 by the augstinian order on the banks of the river wharfe. the land and other resourses were given to the order by lady alice de romille of skipton castle in 1154. in the early 14th century scottish raiders caused temporary abandonment of the site and caused structural damage to the priory. the nave of the abbey church was used as a parish church from 1170 and survived the dissolution of the monastaries.the dissoution of the monastaries resulted in the termination of the priory in 1539.more work was done in the victorian era,but the east end remains in ruins, most of the remaining church was done in gothic style.

Some of the stepping stones were washed away during the flooding in March ..


Sometimes you just have to take a chance when the early morning weather is grey ,misty and doesnt look like shifting ..but then out comes the sun in the afternoon :))

This beautiful waterfall in the Valley Of Desolation near Bolton Abbey stands around 10m high and is hidden away that you wouldn't know it was there. A lovely peaceful spot on a summers day.
