Jean Claude Thank you once again for your visit. I am very happy that you like this. Herb

Steve Glad to see that you too are a lover of these old barns and walls. There are many in this valley and I hope to put some more examples of them here in Panoramio soon. Herb

Wonderful photo of this somber weather in this valley. There is not much light to take a shot.

Greetings, Jan

Herb Riddle on December 31, 2008

Steve and Jan Always nice to have your positive comments. I have more pictures of this valley in wonderful lighting - so watch out. Steve, I've taken a look at quite a few of your slides and some are really great. Jan, I expect to see your older slides or scanned photo's in the near future too?

Robert and Magdalena Thanks for you compliments of this photo. After seeing both of your splendid photographic efforts too, I feel honoured. Cheers, Herb on January 5, 2009

A fantastic picture Herb! You used the perfect focus length. Like in your other pictures the light creates a nice atmosphere.

Greetings from Germany

Herb Riddle on January 6, 2009

Digga Twigga, your comments are very valuable to me knowing how good your own pictures are. Yes, like you, I too believe that the lighting is of paramount importance with this type of picture. Greetings to you in Deutchland. Herb (Greeting from England)

Hi Herb, I have noticed your pictures many a time on here and there are some lovely shots ,however the ones that always stand out above all that you do are the ones like this. I can tell from your Wharfedale pictures that this must be where your roots lie . I love the Yorkshire moors and dales and always hope that love comes across in my pictures, it certainly does in yours.

Beautiful !

regards, Sam

Herb Riddle on August 16, 2009

Pali thanks for liking this. I am happy I have pleased you here.

Sam, it is always a great pleasure reading comments like yours here. Before answering this, I have taken a quick look at your gallery and now know that we are on the same wavelength as far as the Dales are concerned. I get up there often and love the feeling of nature and light as depicted by my attempts at capturing them. I love, in particular the Wharfedale area and if viewers recognise, as you have, my love for these parts then I have done the job right.

Best regards to you both, Herb
