The Bridge

Inspired by a shot on the wall in the cafe at Ogwen Cottage this is shot just a few metres up the path towards Llyn Idwal, Snowdonia. The hardest thing about this was waiting for the bridge and the path beyond to be clear on a busy July Saturday.

I like to take it steady these days...gone are the days of 15 mile route marches. This was taken on an enjoyable 4 mile walk in Ribblesdale last week...yeah 4 miles is just nice.

A Spring Evening at Brentor Church

This image of Brentor Church on the edge of Dartmoor was captured during a fleeting moment of light. I stupidly didn't take a winter jacket with me so I had to suffer the cold winds as they battered me on the hill top. Though being cold isn't fun the image I captured makes me glad I stuck around. Read more about my recent adventure to Brentor Church over on my blog: Brentor Church

Cautley Holme Beck, Howgill Fells near Sedbergh, Yorkshire Dales National Park, Cumbria, UK

Following sustained rainfall onto uplands yet to recover from Storm Desmond earlier in the month, flow levels in Cautley Holme Beck were rather higher than normal. A good day to visit Cautley Spout, in the background, but I'd had to take my boots off to (carefully!) ford the river – my usual stepping stones were submerged. Soooo cold....

Cautley Spout, England's tallest (above ground) waterfall, where the hanging valley of Red Gill Beck, off the upper left of the image, abruptly terminates in a 198 m cascade (not a single drop) into the main valley. The stream to its right is normally dry.

The slope above is Hare Shaw, reaching ~665 m asl at the unnamed north-western end of The Calf's summit ridge. The gap to the right is Bowderdale Head and the pass north across the Howgills (via, oddly enough, Bowderdale), then the ground rises again to a ~590 m shoulder of Yarlside.
