Up close


During my short break in Upper Wharfedale, the weather was unusually bright and sunny. It's delightful to see the Dales in such conditions - pale limestone, spring greens and blue skies are a winning combination. It was, however, really too bright and contrasty for good landscape photographs so sometimes I concentrated smaller subjects - the swirls and eddies of the streams, bits of sheep's wool caught on twigs, the wildflowers and birds like the pretty male chaffinch, who posed nicely for me on a rusty wire fence.

  2. You captured such beautiful soft colours here Jenny, just how I imagine the Dales colours to be. You can imagine how difficult it is here photography wise in the harsh 40C summer midday sun, hopeless 😊 I'm very happy to be in spring with winter approaching!

  3. A good idea when it is too contrasty. Lovely photos as usual. the first water swirl is also a good abstract.
