    Checking your porfolio, here's my suggestions,
    If the weather is OK, low wind, dry check out the falcon centre http://www.hawkexperience.com/
    For landscape go to Malham, for the cove, limestone pavements, and Gordale Scar for a dramatic waterfall. There's a fine pub in the village.
    For a pretty drive go to Kettlewell, Starbotton, Buckden up the Wharfe valley.

    Enjoy

    Scalebar force is between Skipton and Settle. You can park at the side of the road and it's a five to ten minute walk (Quite steep to get down to the base though). Click on the map tab on the pic so you know how to find it.

    The obvious is the Dales, Malham, Twistleton, Scalebar etc the limestone pavements of the upper Dales are breathtaking. Then you Swaledale with all the barns. For market towns / Cities look at Northallerton, York, Ripon, Knaresborough, Harrogate ( great for shopping etc) Scarborough, Whitby then there's the fishing villages like Staithes and Robin Hoods Bay. Brimham rocks have already been mentioned, but there are far more rock outcrops in and around Nidderdale (the forgotten Neighbour of Wharfedale) the rock outcrops from the last Ice Age when the Sandstone was deposited by the glaciers).

    Almost forgot the North Yorkshire Moors, Sutton Bank is quite good. To be honest North Yorkshire probably has more to offer for the landscape photographer than probably any other county.

    I forget the name of the village where "Heartbeat" was filmed (Google for it) but that has some interesting features, especially if you are into old railways.

    Skipton base

    you don't really want the 2-3 hour drive to Goathland and the north york moors, so I'd stick close to the Skipton area - which is malham, ingleton, settle, clapham, kingdale and maybe venture to Dentdale. Ribblehead is worth a look of course, very impressive viaduct in the middle of the hills.

    If you've a long day...

    Ingleton waterfalls walk...
    Back to Settle for Scalebar Force
    Follow the road to Airton which goes onto Malham, grab your sunset there - I hear there's a tree there?

    Not any more - Sutty wore it out and then chopped it down so no-one else could take any Smile
