The Love of Limestone

By sut68      
As hard as it is to believe, yesterday morning was the first time this year I've managed to get out with my imaging box in anger, in 2015 ... and it felt good, albeit not that brilliant when the alarm went off at 1.30am.

I had checked the weather reports for a few days and there looked like a window of opportunity was developing in the Yorkshire Dales, so I revisited this spot in the hope of getting the shot I had imagined a couple of years back on my last visit.

The clouds kept rolling in from the west and sunrise was looking unlikely, but the odd break made the morning worthwhile ... although I may still have to come back for 'that' shot.

Cheers Adam and a huge thanks too Jan, your UA is very much appreciated.

I have seemed to be busy with other things early on in the year Adam and this got compounded with a lack of enthusiasm through April and May ... so it felt weird, but good, to get out on Saturday and blow away them extensive cobwebs Wink Mrs S says "hello" back Grin

Hardly worth going to bed for to get up at 1.30am!! Glad you got something for your effort, and obviously, you'll have to go back again to get "the shot!"

Know the feeling about lack of inspiration or enthusiasm, as i've felt the same for the last few months, and only been out sporadically but do enjoy it when i do make the effort.

Very true mate, but even those precious few hours were very welcome Smile

Enjoyed it myself, hopefully it'll ignite the enthusiasm to get out and about a little more now Wink
