Very bonny Sam!

Looks like a nice little place to stop and have tea and cakes, or if the wife is driving a pint or two, beautiful picture Sam..Like..Regards Richard

Cheers KC. Still can't beat actually being there though Ian but yes it is a cheap alternative. Maybe my camera is 2 mins fast or maybe it took 2 mins to take all the 48 frames that went into this ;O). It is indeed a bonny place Neil and a very popular one, had I tried to do this at the weekend or earlier in the day there would have been way too much traffic both pedestrian and vehicular.

Both options are good Richard with very nice venues for either choice though the prices and on a weekend the wait to get served can have you wondering if you ought to have brought your own refreshments which is my preference being a tight fisted Tyke :o).

Mnay thanks to you all for the lovely comments.

Sam :o)

Superb picture l+F. Spent a good while on a virtual walk through the village and up and down hill, stopping off for tea at the Muker Tearooms and playing a quick tune on the church organ before a hasty retreat back to Madrid (the picture is that good!). Regards, Andy

Yorkshire Sam on June 21, 2012

At that time of day Andy your tea at the tearoom would definately be a virtual one but obviously you were enjoying sitting there so much you didn't leave time to call in at the Gallery or the craft centre. You can always visit again of course and perhaps overnight at Bridge House B&B.

Glad you enjoyed it mate, cheers for commenting etc.

Did you set your camera clock to the church or did you fiddle with it post processing Sam ?

People buy clay buildings over 'ere and make model villages like this during the holidays (Christmas time to you and me). This is the life what they are yearning for.

Great encapsulation of that life mate.


Yorkshire Sam on June 22, 2012

Jethro , you lost me with that first bit mate :o< .

"They" are welcome to come and buy prints mate ( I'll sort out your commission ) and this one would fill a wall if they really want to feel like being there.

Cheers fella

Neil Grimwood on June 22, 2012

I wouldn't mind it on my wall Sam!!, its another BD!! from Yorkshire.Its actually the first time i've seen the village so i had a good look round,its a lovely place mate,very nicely captured(still can't read all the reg plate though;-)))As for tea and cakes,i'd much rather be sat on yon hill with some bait.

Yorkshire Sam on June 22, 2012

I'm glad you enjoyed the wander Neil and I'm with you on that sitting up the hill with some bait, I dissen't like forkin out 3 quid for 2 cups of tea and twice that for some cake. If tha really want's it for thee wall I'll gladly send you the file to have printed mate.

I'm gutted about that lack of detail on t'car tha knows :o).

Cheers !

Neil Grimwood on June 25, 2012

You mean you're letting me pay fer't printing!! don't forget i'm a Tyke a'nall the knows;-)) It would have been nice to read that reg plate,a minor detail though considering what else is on view.It just remains for me to saymust do better next time!!

PS the clock more than makes up for it.

Yorkshire Sam on June 25, 2012

I'm not biting Mr Grimwood though the bait is tempting :o)

Bl*y wind up merchant you are :o)

Yorkshire Sam on June 25, 2012

PS since you're not having to pay for haircuts and I still do :o) it's only right thee pays for t'printing fella ;O)

Yorkshire Sam on June 27, 2012

Gennady Misko, you have just copied and pasted this same comment on several images so to me it has no genuine meaning and as such I treat it and you with this contempt

Goodbye !

Derek Geer on July 2, 2012

Beautiful old village in a wonderful landscape. Regards Derek

Yorkshire Sam on July 2, 2012

That sentiment is what attracts thousands of visitors Derek and the empty streets here belie it's daytime hustle and bustle of hikers, bikers and people arriving by other vehicular means.

cheers !

brian gillman on July 15, 2012

Don't do this to me, Sam! - (bringing back all those pleasant memories of visits to the Dales). I can easily imagine that's James Herriot's car parked there.

Best wishes, Brian.

Yorkshire Sam on July 25, 2012

Now Brian we all know that's waht photos are for, especially better when the memories are pleasant :o)

Thank you
