Yorkshire, United Kingdom
I simply love Yorkshire and its magnificent scenery. Every season Yorkshire has something magical to offer. There's nothing better than getting my hiking boots on and disappearing into Yorkshire's superb countryside! I take my camera everywhere with me to ensure others can appreciate the many beautiful things that I see on my breathtaking walks. My photography has been featured on ITV Calendar, BBC Look North and has been published in The Yorkshire Ridings Magazine, The Yorkshire Dalesman, Country Walking Magazine and Countryfile magazine. Some of my images have been transformed into beautiful paintings by Yorkshire artists. At the end of 2013 I was selected to be the Face of Ordnance Survey. You can see me in the 'Explore More' campaign. Follow me on Twitter: @Yorkshireimages Email enquiries:

Upper Wharfedale - Kettlewell to Starbotton

Here are just a few of my photographs from a lovely hike in Upper Wharfedale today.
It was a changeable day with big bursts of sunshine and the odd gentle shower.

A gentle uphill climb from Kettlewell village.

Some great views over Upper Wharfedale from Cross Wood.

Every gate stile offers just a little bit more of Upper Wharfedale!

Changeable skies over dramatic scenery.

A short shower on entering Starbotton.

Across the River Wharfe near Calf Hall Farm, Starbotton.

Back to Kettlewell!

A wonderful stretch of the Dales Way leads back to Kettlewell.
