Edge – Photography 101

The edge of Malham Cove in the Yorkshire Dales. A step too far and a 260 foot drop to the floor below.

Some of you may recognise it from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as one of our intrepid heroes camp sites.

With my Geography head on, it’s a limestone pavement made up of clints and grykes.

Architecture – Photography 101

The Ribblehead Viaduct is an iconic structure within the Yorkshire Dales. If God had a train set this would be part of it !

It took four years to build between 1870 and 1874 and during its construction employed a thousand men who set up shanty towns around the structure.

It’s 400m long and 32m high and constructed using more than 1.5 million bricks.
