Summer Nights

Sunset among the poppy fields of North Yorkshire

10th May 2024 Aurora storm

A beautiful display of aurora lasting until dawn right across the UK, rivalling anything I have seen in more northern latitudes. Captured between 10pm and 4am, the aurora went through all different colours. A definite sore head the morning after but well worth it!

Springtime Flowers

Spring moves into summer and with it the flowers bloom in the North York Moors, bluebells and gorse along with the fresh green leaves make for a beautiful time.

I’ve been spending as much time outdoors as possible under the better weather and have been climbing Roseberry Topping to improve my fitness, it may be steep but it’s not the biggest hill, so i’ve been completing some circuits climbing it twice each walk just to get some ascents in.

Sunset over Hawnby

This summer saw my third visit to Iceland, to see the volcanic eruption and to journey through the highlands under the midnight sun.

Spring 2023

Spring felt finally fully here at last with this sunset over Roseberry Topping taken from Little Roseberry; although it was a balmy 2 degrees while stood up on the hillside!

It was an unexpectedly beautiful sunset on my recent walk from Aireyholme Farm and over Newton Moor. I have been spending a lot of time hiking recently, many times doing this same circuit from the farm and up the series of the hills from Cliff Rigg far in the left distance, then Roseberry Topping and up over Little Roseberry and back over Newton Moor to Gribdale. It was only a matter of weeks ago that I was knee deep in snow on the same walk! In the coming weeks the bluebells will return..

Sunsets that mirror the landscape
A beautiful location but one which requires further time to get the most from it.
This year’s heather bloom is absolutely stunning, the best for years.

Spring 2022

Spring is well under way in the north of England, the gorse is particularly spectacular this year!

Winter 2021

I spent much of my winter weekends this year roaming Teesdale and enjoying the various walks the area has to offer. It’s somewhere I have always been particularly fond of so it’s little surprise that it’s regularly used as a filming location by major production companies.

BBC A Wild Year – The North York Moors

In the north east of England lies a wild and remote moorland – 550 square miles of windswept heather-clad uplands and deep, sheltered valleys or dales. These are the North York Moors.

Over millennia, this spectacular landscape has been shaped by the elements – by water and ice – and more recently by people.

Remote farmsteads are dotted all across the high country. On Dale Head Farm, the Barraclough family raise tough swaledale and cheviot sheep, animals bred for the moorland life. They can be left out on the hill year-round because over many generations they have built up an intimate knowledge of their patch – each flock is ‘hefted’ to the land.

The flocks are brought down off the moors to the shelter of the dales a couple of times each year – in the spring for lambing and again in the summer to be shorn of their heavy winter coats. The best shearers can clip 300 sheep in a day.

In 2020, it’s never felt better to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful oblivion of being alone in nature.
