Moody and Magnificent… a collection of Winter Shots from the North Yorkshire Moors

Although I am exiled in the south of England (Voluntarily I hasten to add) – I do like to get back up to the moors and keep an eye on them. They never fail to suprise, intimidate and inspire me. The shots below were taken December through March – and its the March shots that have snow.. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them. It was cold, but even with snow on the hills, determined mountain bikers were braving the conditions and enjoying the scenery. Image

A very watery December sun…this ‘Famous Grouse’ was determined to check me out… this was at the highpoint of the moors – roughly 450m above sea-level.

This was the view in December…

How it changed for my next visit….

Looking in the same direction but not quite the same place.. actually about 3 or 4 miles east looking west from the above pic..

By March when this shot was taken, most of the snow had gone, but this final shot shows how deep it had been…

Thanks for reading

  1. Thanks for that post… I spent 10 years around West/North Yorkshire and truly loved the place.
