  1. Some of my favourite country having enjoyed hundreds of happy hours walking over it, crawling under it and running round it.

  2. Great photos - beats looking out of the window at the moment - horizontal sleet not my thing!

    ('dentia' - mmm. )

  3. Fantastic contrasts of light, Alan. I havent walked / run in the Yorkshire Dales for about 18 months or two years now. You really have made me want to visit again - soon!

  5. Thanks for the kind comments - they are only snaps taken with an old digital compact.

    Old Gregorlach & Shamus: You are right - the Yorkshire Dales are very special - I came to them only recently (on my Lejog, really) but they are wonderful as they are beautifully spaced with wonderful views and lovely rock architecture.

    There is an awful lot of sky there too.

  6. The Dales were my first love, (after Suffolk...) as we spent every holiday there for seven years. Loved it, it's a beautiful, atmospheric place, trapped in some kind of timewarp. Then, I moved to Scotland.

    Is that a "Then I moved to Scotland - bugger!" or a
    "and THEN.. I moved to Scotland! (Wowee!)" Hope for your sake it's the latter...
