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:

New Year's Day Hike 2013 - Penhill, Wensleydale

I've often passed Penhill, Wensleydale in the car and wanted to climb up to the top but for one reason or another I never got around to it! So on New Year's Day 2013 I decided it was time to hike up to the summit! I parked at West Witton, a pretty village between Leyburn and Hawes on the A684.  The steep 1200' hike up to the summit via West Witton Moor was hard going at times as the shale footpath zigzagged up the hillside. The views over Wensleydale and Coverdale after the uphill slog were superb!

Below is just a small collection of my images from the day:
