One Word Sunday – Tower

Tower 1. A building or part of a building that is exceptionally high in proportion to its width and length. My interpretation of Debbie Smyth's One Word Sunday called Tower has to be the bridge that towers over the River Nidd at Knaresborough in Yorkshire. I processed the image primarily in Lightroom and then sent … Continue reading One Word Sunday – Tower

Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge: #16 Big Can Be Beautiful Too!!

For Tina's challenge this week I thought of Big Ben now named as Queen Elizabeth Tower.  But to me and many others, it is still Big Ben.

Whilst in North Yorkshire, Fountains Abbey, was big.  With a little imagination, … Continue reading Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge: #16 Big Can Be Beautiful Too!!

Spanning the river

During our trip to Nidd Hall back in August, one day we went to Harrogate.  Upon our return back to the hotel, we came across a place called Nidd Gorge.   I have never seen such beautiful scenery in all my life.

Cottage by Fountains Bridge

Just by the entrance of Fountains Abbey, stands Fountains Bridge  on Fountains Lane... And on that road stands this wonderful and quaint English cottage.  It is breathtakingly beautiful and believe it or not that road had a sharp right-hand turn that leads up to the Aldfield.  The entrance is just up from that gate on … Continue reading Cottage by Fountains Bridge

Knaresborough Viaduct

During our visit to North Yorkshire, one of the places we visited was Nidd Gorge.  As we strolled around the wooded area, at the end of the walk was a bridge that crosses the River Nidd. From this bridge, you can see the Knaresborough Viaduct.  To say I was in awe of this beautiful viaduct … Continue reading Knaresborough Viaduct

Brimham Rocks

On our last full day in North Yorkshire, before heading home the following morning, I put my foot down and said... those famous girlie words 'Retail Therapy'.  Oh, the look of disgust that I had mentioned those words was clearly shown across his face. You know the look... no matter how hard you try to … Continue reading Brimham Rocks
