Buckden Pike 14_07_09_09_51_04.JPG

This group of photographs were taken on a walk from Buckden, taking the steady climb up to the summit of Buckden Pike. This gave lovely views for most of the ascent and descent. On the top I met a National Trust worker and he told me the story of the Wellington Bomber that crashed on a snowy winter day. As you can see a Memorial Cross has been erected in their honour. Notice the fox, apparently the one survivor followed the foxes footprints to find the nearest farm. It was being flown by a Polish crew, who unfortunately most lost their lives. Here is a link to the story Google I was staying for a week in Grassington at Oak Cottage Google


Taken on my Nikon D7100 with GPS using my 10-17mm Tokina Fish-Eye, Sigma 10-20mm Wide Angle or Nikon 28-140mm DX lenses. I also use my Nikon SB-910 Flash when required.
