Civilization below the road and wild moors above the road. I love the bits of heather I see here and there. I had a chuckle about your comment about your filter...sounds all too familiar to me & I don't even have filters.

...but it made for wonderful color saturation and a moody blue sky:)

Hello Jim FANTASTIC SHOT How's the Fishing >>))))))o> ?

A.Lebacq....Thanks for your generous affirmation Arthur ;>)

Enzo Molino~~~~You are most welcome Enzo..many thanks ;>

Teresa Jankowska----->I'm so glad you enjoyed this photo Teresa

MaryAlice~~~~Hello my dear Georgia buddy ;>) I am so grateful for your visit and fulsome, thoughtful appraisal ;>) You are so observant MA, often picking on subjects which escape my not so observant eyes..The unusual hue resulted from the use of a violet coloured, polarising filter. The grey/whitish limestone is widely available in Yorkshire, often distributed by past glacial activity and is spread randomly on the moors. So what better use of materials is this. Over the centuries, as farms have encroached higher up to the moorlands, these stones were cleared from the land to permit the use of ploughs and other farm implements. Eventually, this material was used for building homesteads and of course, the famous dry stone walls.

beegood~~~~Warm greetings Maja...I am humbled by your generous praise..The Y* and lovely compliments mean a great deal to me ;>) I am privileged to be surrounded by such a wealth of natural beauty. ;>)

trikermike-----Perhaps my good friend, you will not be surprised to learn that this vexing question has been asked many times..

FRYUP is the least known, yet probably the most visually stunning of all North East Yorkshire dales..So many of these tiny moorland roads have signposts pointing to Fryup, yet very few drivers ever find their way into the dale..Perhaps it is a ploy by the local inhabitants to bamboozle and confuse the unsuspecting tourists. Too much information!!!

As far as breakfast is concerned, they will be very good, assuming of course that you can find a vacancy ;>))

Thanks for stopping by guys..I'm glad you like my photos ;>)

pheylmann...Thanks..I'm most grateful for your kind appraisal ;>)

Tombstone65...Haha Freddy----It certainly does look a bit unnatural, yet I rather like the end result ;>)

gor.maja~~~~Your precious comments and thoughtful words are most rewarding Maya..that Y* means a lot to me..Thank you so much ;>)

zbynda~~~~It's good to see you back again my friend..your good comments are much appreciated ;>)

joyfotos...Hi!! Joy..the nice thing about my complete lack of knowledge on the subject of filters means that happy accidents are always a possibility ;>) I enjoyed your feedback Joy ;>)

Puna...Good to see you Puna..thanks for your nice compliment ;>) As for the fishing, my boat diesel engine was wrecked by the use of incorrect fuel. There was a terrible mix-up when my fuel supplier delivered heating oil by mistake.

In the UK, Marine diesel and heating oil is coloured with the same red dye. It is impossible to know the difference. However, diesel engine components are soon wrecked if heating oil is used. There is no lubricating effect in heating oil, as there is in diesel fuel..

I am the victim of some sort of scam. Hence NO FISHING THIS YEAR. Bosch component spares to fix the engine are not yet available in the UK..It will be many weeks before the engine is fixed and yet I still end up with the same problem..that is --bad fuel!!

Kind regards every one ;>)

Hello Jim, this is a wonderful capture of this superb scene and I appreciate it all the more now that we have visited the area. I enjoyed our visit immensely and hope to come back for a more extended visit when I retire. You are lucky to live in such a beautiful place.

I hope you have got that boat fuel system fixed and are managing to get some fishing in before the winter.

My very best regards to you, John

PS. Nearly forgot I gave it a YS and Like

john adamson*It was a pleasure to make your acquaintance John..It has been a long hard year since you visited..The boat situation went from bad to disastrous..It's a long story, but suffice to say it has been a very expensive and time consuming experience. Thankfully, I can see some daylight at the end of the tunnel! Your generous praise means a great deal to me, thank you!


مجتبی غلامرضای2
