Friday Image No.185

Dry riverbed above Malham Cove, Yorkshire. Fuji X-T2, 18-55 lens, ISO200, 1/220″ at f/11.0

For this week’s Friday image, I want to share possibly my favourite view in all Malham. Yes, Malham Cove is spectacular as is Grodale Scar. Janets Foss is tranquil and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. But for me, this dry prehistoric riverbed with its drystone wall is amazing. The first time I ever saw it I thought wow, and I still think wow each time I see it.

From where I shot this, there is a cliff immediately behind me. Sitting on top of that cliff with your feet dangling over, eating a sandwich is pure heaven.

I hope you like the image and have a great weekend.

  1. Many thanks, Robin, a lovely image. I hope to visit Malham one day. Hope you have a productive and more importantly, a lovely, relaxing weekend. Cheers.

    1. Hi Frank, The horizon appears to slope because it is sloping. That’s not caused by the camera being titled but by the hills actually appearing to slope. I have noticed this before in this area. What makes it more obvious in this instance is that there is a restricted view of the horizon. I know the camera was level as I shoot with the electronic level turned on and check it regularly. Hope it doesn’t spoil the enjoyment of the image.

    1. It’s a great view, isn’t it. And when you reach the end of that wall, you’re at Malham cover. The view from the top is spectacular but full of people. It feels like a shock after walking down the riverbed.

  2. Another excellent image. I have visited a number of times, out of season to avoid the crowds (see previous image and comments!), but never have I seen a blue sky above. I am jealous.

    This landscape photo is a marvellous shot of one of the most beautiful area in the country. You can keep showing the photos of these scenes as long as you like.
    Thanks very much

      1. Beg to differ (offer a different perspective).
        My favourite are the granite moors of Yorkshire. Howarth area.
        (I might just be biassed 🙂 )
