For those of you who know, landscape photography has had to take a back seat over recent weeks due to contracting flu and then a rather nasty chest infection. I have been itching to get out and exercise my photographic muscles for a while now but not had the energy to do so.

A couple of weekends ago I decided to bite the bullet and get out with the gear and do a dusk-til-dawn shoot in the wonderful Yorkshire Dales - Malham in particular.

Whilst this does usually mean an uncomfortable night trying to sleep in the car, I decided to try my hand at some night photography with varying levels of success [or should that be failure? Wink] - more of that to come.

This shot was in a location I have never taken before, but one I will likely return too on Ing Scar above WatlowesDry Path - looking towards Comb Hill.

Weather reports said that a decent sunset was a good possibility, but a large cloud bank put paid to that. There seemed to be light all around the landscape, but not where I wanted it, so a good hour or so's perseverance was required to get any light at all for my first shot. This image was taken about 2 hours after I had arrived, but the light was wonderful for a few minutes when it did materialise.

Sorry to hear you've been unwell Paul. Hope the recovery is complete. I'm liking the composition here - the lime stone pavement gives a real sense of depth and carries well to the hills in the back ground.

How's Fran?

A beautiful landscape. Glad to hear you're feeling better. I look forward to seeing more of your landscapes. Your comments have made me think I should find a good location and spend the day from dawn to dusk.

Cheers fellas ... I can highly recommend it Francis, particularly with the long days of Summer.

Back to normal Adrian barring a nagging cough, but fingers crossed that clears up in a week or two.

Ta all,
Paul

Thanks too Derek, it was a bit of a wait for the light to break where I wanted it, but worth it.

I've had a bit of a break from here but been active elsewhere [goes to wash out mouth with soapy water] ... glad you like this one.

Cheers,
Paul
