Northern Heights

I spend a great deal of time walking and exploring the Fells and Dales of Yorkshire and the Lake District looking for those elusive images that capture the power, beauty and tranquility of our wild environment.
The Northern Heights Exhibition images are all photographs from around the Yorkshire Dales, the Cumbrian Lake District, and the North York Moors.
The photographs are all colour images shot on Fuji Velvia slide film, then scanned and digitally printed.

The South Face of Gavel Pike

This unusual winter view of Gavel Pike and the mountains of the eastern Lake District behind gives no sense of scale to the cliffs in the foreground.
High Street is on the skyline, with Thornthwaite Beacon and Stoney Cove Pike in front, then Gavel Pike in the foreground.

Lakeland Skies

Taken from near the summit of Bannerdale Crags looking to the northern hills of Great Calva and Knott the cold early light of the morning illuminates the snow.

Great Gable and Sprinkling Tarn

Great Gable and Sprinkling Tarn taken from Allen Crags, after a long night on the fell and an even longer wait for the right lighting, this image shows that patience sometimes pays off.

Roseberry Topping

Roseberry Topping

Roseberry Topping on the edge of the North York Moors, its iconic shape likened to the Matterhorn (but not quite as hard to climb) can be seen for miles around and gets much attention from landscape photographers. This particular viewpoint, made famous by the images of landscape photographer Joe Cornish is best visited at sunrise in spring and autumn, when the soft light enriches the warm colours.

Beach Stone

Beach Stone: I couldn't help wondering how far this stone had travelled to get to Runswick Bay. It stood out from the dark shale and seemed very out of place, like the only tourist in a village!

Dark Falls

Dark Falls

This small beck near Smelthouses in Nidderdale wanders through the woods and has numerous waterfalls, this one captured the essence of the stream...... small and mysterious.........a quiet place that's rarely visited.

Dusk on Hen House Hill

Hen House Hill (the stand of trees on the skyline) is situated between Melmerby in Coverdale and West Witton in Wensleydale on the road that takes you over the top of Melmerby Moor. The midges can be rife here, but the heather can be some of the best.

Fallen Tree

Fallen Tree

This ancient woodland near the villages of Birstwith and Darley in Nidderdale is one of my favourite places just to wander and absorb the timeless process of nature. As one tree dies it slowly dissolves back into the ground to feed back into the natural circle of forest life.
To me this image shows each stage of life, birth,old age, death and then rebirth.

The Dipper

The Dipper at Scaleber Force near Settle in Ribblesdale was one of the first images I took with my Fuji GW690. Its a popular and easy location for landscape photographers being so close to the road. As I worked around the falls the dipper watched me and followed me then finally posed for a couple of seconds on the log while I took his portrait. I couldn't have planned it and was very lucky to be in the right place at the right time.
