#ScenicSaturday 03/Sep/22

This month, all the photographs in the series were taken in September, though not this year. I have digital images going back to the time I first bought a DSLR camera, and I like to share these.
This image is from the Yorkshire Dales and was taken in 2009. One of the Three Peaks is visible in the distance, but I can’t recall whether it’s Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside or Ingleborough, though I favour the latter from its profile.
These hills have been standing for millennia, and the farmland surrounding them has been cultivated for centuries. Many of the dry-stone walls dividing the fields have remained standing for centuries, too; regular maintenance by skilled and hard-working wallers has kept them intact through the storms, winters, and winds the area often endures.
The Dales is considered by many to be the best walking country in Europe, and we certainly enjoyed our hikes in those fells and valleys. Let’s hope the increasing changes to the climate allow them to remain as beautiful as they are at present. Something, perhaps, we can help ensure by making our lifestyles match the needs of the environment?

I’m posting a weekly photograph of our wonderful world here, but I’m also Tweeting one each day, with the hashtag #ourworldiswonderful, join me there if you wish, you’ll find me here. I hope you’ll comment, like, and share these to spread the joy of natural beauty to as many people as possible. It just might persuade some to join the cause and fight the coming climate emergency and species extinction.

More pictures appear in the Gallery.
Find over 2400 of my images here for whatever you fancy online, or as art quality prints to decorate a room, office, den, or for book covers, calendars, greetings cards, jigsaws, advertising, or whatever else you need.
The small fee helps me maintain and buy equipment and software quality digital photography demands. Everyone should be able to afford my work, I loathe the exclusivity of high prices.

    1. It’s a great place to walk, Noelle. We lived there for a few years, when I worked in the area. And, yes, Wensleydale, especially bought fresh from the farm, is excellent!
