Malham Tarn

On a journey to the North Yorkshire Dales we visited Malham Tarn, which is a National Trust property. We spent a relatively short time exploring the area, which we intend to visit again.

We didn’t find the way to Malham Cove, but learned that it was farther away than we had time to walk to. Another time we might park nearer to it and explore a different area.

The pictures tell the story. (The rocky outcrop was too large to fit into a single shot.)


No fire!

I remember one of the early photos I took as a child was of a waterfall. I had a Brownie box camera, which had been passed down to me from older members of the family. Dad took the same waterfall with a more recent camera and from a different angle. After all he was an experienced amateur photographer. No prizes for guessing whose photo was better!
For the photo challenge elemental, I am submitting two photos taken in Hawes, where we stopped briefly on a journey to the Yorkshire Dales. I still cannot resist snapping a waterfall. Standing on the pavement, I could not fit in the entire width of the river, so here are two photos taken with my phone (as usual). Research on Wikipedia leads me to believe that this is a tributary of the River Ure named Gayle Beck.

The photo challenge from the Daily Post is elemental – air, earth, fire and water. My photos include air entrained in water flowing over rocks, but no fire!

A holiday walk

The photo challenge from the Daily post is about Holidays.  Thanksgiving has just been celebrated in the USA.  It is not our tradition in Britain.  I am busy preparing for Advent and Christmas.

For me holidays would not be complete without some walks in the open air.  My photo is from June this year, when a small group of people took a break from a writers’ conference to walk to a view point.  We were standing on a rocky outcrop in the Yorkshire Dales, known as Coni Pie. (From Conistone a village nearby and the geographical feature looking like a pie.)
