Malham Cove - a natural limestone formation near Malham, North Yorkshire, England.

A well-known beauty spot, it comprises a huge, curved limestone cliff at the head of a valley, with a fine area of limestone pavement at the top. To the left-hand side of the 80-metre high cliff face are about four-hundred irregular stone steps: these lead to an uneven limestone pavement which slopes gently down from nearby Malham Tarn.

The valley was formed at the end of the last ice age when the ground was frozen. The frozen ground meant that meltwater from the melting ice sheet formed a large river flowing over the surface, eroding the valley that we see today. The water from this river flowed over Malham Cove to form a huge waterfall. When the climate warmed around 12,000 years ago the ground thawed and the river in the valley disappeared underground leaving the valley dry as we see it today.

The cove, along with nearby Gordale Scar, was featured in an episode of the BBC TV series Seven Natural Wonders as one of the natural wonders of Yorkshire.

The cove was also featured in the film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 1) as one of the places Hermione and Harry travel to.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Yew Pike'.

Best wishes,
Philip

V1 and V2 for me today - it is a shame to not to show the lush green of the grass.
Beautiful landscapes.

Malham; one of my favourite destinations. As a schoolboy we would spend hours climbing the crags and messing about in the tarn. Thank you fore lighting those memories Phillip with this wonderful set.

Wonderful scenery with V1 & V2 being my favourites. It's the lovely colours as well as the details in these two, I think.

I think I like the mono best here, of course that may not come as much of a surprise.

Super sequence, Phillip, luv v1, 2 & 3, not sure of the black and white, i feel it does not do justice to the wonderful scenery.
Nice work and well done.

It is a wonderful and fasinating place to to visit but not on a cold day like it is at the moment. Nice natural detail and I like the angle you have used to take it.

Very hard to choose between 1 + 2, so it will just have to be both. A beautiful place well captured and portrayed.

The limestone landscape is similar to parts of the Purbecks, only we don't have many of those lovely dry stone walls.
