Sunday 9th Feb........A black and white day in the Dales

With the poor weather showing no signs of improving I set off into the Dales with little hope or expectation of getting any descent images, but on such a wild and bleak day the Dales are in their most uncompromising mood and can be even more photogenic than usual.

I was struck by the wild open power of the moors and the way that man has tried to force train lines, roads and telephone lines across a such desolate landscape.

This image (above), taken from about a mile away, of an enormous water fall coming out from underground is very unusual.  These falls are usually completely dry and will only run after a very long and heavy spell of rain and are a testament to the amount of rain we've had over the last few months.
