I recently attended a Light and Land 'Leading Lights' workshop to the Yorkshire Dales led by Joe Cornish. Having moved back to Yorkshire, I was excited about spending a full week getting to know the potential of the area and thinking about how I want to approach my photography.
All I can say is that the Yorkshire Dales National Park is magnificent. Like everyone else, I started out by 'collecting a few stamps' - the barns at Angram for example where it is possible to work out how to position the camera from the tripod holes! Such places barely scratch the surface. When you go beyond the obvious and start to work some locations (like this one - made on my fourth visit to the same spot) the potential is awesome.
The beauty of this stream near Wensleydale, sprouting out of the ground 100 yards upstream, as if from nowhere, is simply breathtaking.
I look forward to many trips and many magnificent days of photography.
