Yorkshire Dales trip



With no 'real' camera on hand (very remiss!) I had to make do with my mobile today as I was back in Yorkshire visiting the magnificent limestone pavement near Ingleborough.

After a nice drive around the area and a great pup pool competition and lunch, we headed off for a walk over the pavement. Its so strange to see this completely natural phenomenon which spans for miles in the shadow of the massive Pen-y-Ghent. It was formed about 15,000 years ago when a huge sheet of ice smoothed over miles of rough limestone, chiseling out the valley as it moved on. The power needed to do this is simply amazing.

I took a few pictures and also tried a short vlog too. It's a great place if you're ever nearby.



Here's a proper pic as well (Taken last year on my trusty film 'rangefinder')

Nice photographs. It is amazing what you can find on your own doorstep isn't it.
