Bamford Edge


Bamford Edge

I’ve never been to Bamford Edge before, but it overlooks Ladybower and I’ve been around that area a few times before.

There is a small patch for cars near the top of the road, cross over a turnstyle and start the walk!

Bamford Edge

It’s not a far walk, but the first stretch of it is quite steep. Once you are up on the top though, it’s flat and the path is clear.

We got there just in time for sunset, and by the time we had walked back to the car it was just about dark.

Waterfalls

Mallyan SpoutThere aren’t many waterfalls in the North York Moors, but I was determined to find the ones that there were. It turns out that they are quite close to each other, but it also turned out that despite the fact it has been raining, they weren’t exactly in full flow. Falling Foss

 

Getting to the bottom of the Falling Foss was a bit more difficult that I had imagined though, as (due to the rain) we ended up scrabbling down a muddy bank. There wasn’t a path to follow so once we had got down the bank we followed the river back up to the fall. The route back was the same, but we ended up rather muddy after the trip!

Despondent

I’ve been off the boil with my photography of late. As a kind of excuse the weather has been really hot and sunny, meaning that the only ideal times to shoot are sunset and sunrise, and when you work full time there’s not much of me that can be bothered to operate at those times as I’m in bed!

Anywhoo, got out with the camera today. kB’s parents have moved house so the old house is empty.

Fields of Sunshine

I’ve been meaning to get into this field and photograph it for a few weeks now. I drive past it every day on the way to work, and I know there is parking near it so it’s an ideal spot.

For whatever reason though, it’s taken me ages to go to it and photograph it. I was worried today that I was going a bit early. The sun doesn’t set until 9, and I set out just before 7, but it turns out that it clouded over just as I was leaving, and the sun was just at the right height in the sky.

I felt I was pretty lucky with the bees too! So cute and fluffy and buzzy ^_^
