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: NickyBusbyPhotography@yahoo.com

Norber Erratics from Clapham village

These images are from a wonderful 8 mile hike which begins in the pretty village of Clapham.  

The route takes you up Thwaite Lane before climbing alongside Robin Proctor's Scar.




After a short climb up onto the top of the crag a beautiful broad green slope is covered with magnificent boulders.  Some of which are perched on blocks of limestone.  These glacial erratics were dumped here during the last Ice Age, some 12000 years ago!



The route then takes you along a limestone edge before reaching Crummack Dale.  The views are simply breath-taking and on a bright clear day you may want to take many stops to admire the spectacular scenery.



It's not long before Pen-y-Ghent comes into view on the horizon.




The walk back into Clapham is all downhill along Long Lane track.


The views to the east to Thwaite Scars are very impressive as are the views to Clapham beck on the western side of the track.



To appreciate the superb views of this hike it is best carried out on a bright day.  The route is well marked with clear footpaths throughout.

Enjoy!
