The view from Skelton Tower above the North York Moors railway.
I was going to go yesterday but changed my mind due to the heavy cloud cover. Today was rather perfect and some beautiful light slightly diffused through a thin layer of cloud was waiting on my arrival. I had purposely made the journey to see how the heather was developing and I was rather disappointed that it was not as vibrant as I had hoped. The Heather is the Ling variety I believe and this I have learned from recent discussions develops later than the bell heather.
I am rather pleased with the final image. I just missed the last train which was a diesel loco anyway, but I do intend returning in a couple of weeks to hopefully get a loco and a more vibrant Heather. Watch this space.

Hi and glad you came across my site and me. I'm a passionate Landscape photograpaher from York, North Yorkshire, England. I started to seriously photograph landscape images in 2010 after giving up my lifelong passion for course fishing. It was quite a natural progression for me having spent most of my young and adult life chasing that red letter day of bagging up a net full of fish while spending a day in natural beautiful surroundings, been on the bank of a lake or river from dawn to dusk and witnessing some incredible sunrises and sunsets along the way. After a bitter divorce in 2010, my whole life changed and what once was changed. My passion for fishing had gone. My passion for the great outdoors though still remained and photography had always been my second hobby. I decided to mix the two together as a distraction from the past and over the last few years its changed my perception of life. I still end up seeing the sunrise and sunset I loved to witness on the bank, I still get to enjoy the great outdoors but it takes me further afield to explore new avenues, venture to new highs, see new places, share new visions and ultimately get that cracking shot. Its addictive fun and a pleasure to do. I hope you enjoy get something from what I share and I look forward to bringing more of my visions and techniques. Drop me a line any time. Mark
