:o) Nice job mister ! You've found a lovely composition here.The cyclist is a nice extra too. Just needs a sheep or two in the foreground and you'll have perfection :o) I bet they ran off ( see my comment elsewhere re nervous sheep :o) )

I knew you'd like that road and the little places along it.

Neil Grimwood on June 16, 2012

Thankyou kind sir;-) I'd been up here that day we passed near Duck bridge,far too bright for my liking though.I was hoping for some sheep but they didn't want to play,neither did the tractor that turned off at the farm behind me,the cyclist will do fine mate.I took 8 series of this,i like this one best though,i uploaded the other shot just to show more of the dale....cos it Yorkshire;-)) Cheers Sam.

PS Sam, one to visit when the Heather is in bloom i think.

I bet that was Sam on his bike Neil thats why the sheep ran off, nice little place to stop of for a picture. Lovely View and a Like From Me..Regards Richard

Oi ! I heard that.

Neil Grimwood on June 16, 2012

Thanks Richard, its lovely up there when the weather is right. Nah, its not Sam, otherwise there might have been a full moon on show if he'd spotted me with the camera;-))

Neil Grimwood on June 16, 2012

Thanks Ian, it was probably me,there were more behind me but they wouldn't show unfortunately,maybe next time.

Yorkshire Sam on June 16, 2012

The secret it to set up the shot so your sat down and then just chill, they will soon ignore you and wander back into the scene.( sometimes)

Neil Grimwood on June 17, 2012

I tried that mate,didn't work,i even left the mint sauce at home;-))

Yorkshire Sam on June 17, 2012

It must have been the look in your eye that bothered them then fella :o)

Off to the dales for some afternoon sunshine ( all being well) and to see the hay meadows again ( Take 2 ).

Andy Rodker on June 17, 2012

I like both shots equally, this for the hamlet detail and the other for the broader sweep. Like. Best wishes, Andy

Neil Grimwood on June 17, 2012

Have a good day Sam


Thanks Andy,its good to know you like both shots, i think i prefer this one personally.

Just a slightly different angle and closer in, and it looks so different right on the edge of the wild moors. Like it very much ;-))

Neil Grimwood on June 18, 2012

Thanks Rosa,it is as you said just on the edge of the moors,i think i could just about manage to live there,can be a bit naughty in winter though.

What a beauty Neil - the trick is to leave the pub early enough so you avoid getting an ugly sheep!

Neil Grimwood on June 18, 2012

Hi Neil,its nice to see you're still around.

Is that the voice of experience speaking then??;-)) I suspect that if you are in the pub long enough none of them will look ugly.Thanks for the "beauty"

Maja Weidemueller on June 29, 2012

Like from bygone days, love the athmosphere you have created Neill! Really beautiful, and so quiet .... thanks for sharing dear friend - have a nice weekend!


Neil Grimwood on June 29, 2012

As with a lot of these places time seems to have stood still Maja, I'm pleased it has too otherwise what would we point our cameras at;-) Thankyou for a sincere comment and have a nice weekend yourself.

Very best wishes...Neil.
