Website update: Holiday Pictures – October, 2007 – Dales, waterfalls and a floodlit church

Posted by HelenEdith on October 26, 2008

I’ve been busy editing my holiday pictures from last year and have now completed and uploaded the rest of the pictures of our Wednesday activities and all the pictures of our Thursday activities.

We visited a waterfall on each of those days: on Wednesday we saw Janet’s Foss near Malham, which falls into a crystal clear plunge pool; while on Thursday we went to Aysgarth, where the Falls are divided into Upper, Middle and Lower, with water coloured by peat descending over limestone pavements.

Along the way, we took in the scenery in the nearby dales; we saw vibrant red creeper putting on its autumn show on the walls of the pub in Malham; and we stopped to photograph a floodlit church at East Witton.

My pictures are spread out over three linked pages, but they can be individually visited from the following links:
Helen Stephenson’s Yorkshire Holiday Pictures – October, 2007 – Littondale and Malham
Helen Stephenson’s Yorkshire Holiday Pictures – October, 2007 – Wensleydale and Aysgarth
Helen Stephenson’s Yorkshire Holiday Pictures – October, 2007 – East Witton

Here are some pictures of interest to be found within these pages:

Website update: Holiday Pictures – October, 2007 – Nidderdale

Posted by HelenEdith on October 22, 2008

After emerging onto Masham Moor, our Wednesday drive while on holiday last year took us into Nidderdale and past the Gouthwaite Reservoir.

We passed the village of Lofthouse and ended up in the village of Wath, which I think is where we saw a water wheel. The picture on this blog entry is of a barn high up in Nidderdale.

Website update: Holiday Pictures – October, 2007 – Colsterdale

Posted by HelenEdith on October 19, 2008

On the Wednesday of our holiday last year, we went sight-seeing, starting with a drive from Grewelthorp to the nearby village of Masham, where we turned off up Colsterdale.

We worked our way up via Fearby and Healey and past the Leighton Reservoir and onto Masham Moor. The picture on this blog entry is of the bridge which carries the road across the tail of Leighton Reservoir, after which the road climbs up to Masham Moor.

Entry for January 05, 2008 – 2007 Album for Jessie

Posted by HelenEdith on January 5, 2008

I got my set of 2007 pictures printed and into an album for Jessie and gave it to her when she came for “Christmas” dinner on New Year’s Day.

It’s a mixture of pictures which have some significance to Jessie (even if tenuous like living reasonably close to Biggin Hill) plus a few that I put in because I liked them. I also included a few from our October holiday, as a few good holiday snaps are always worth including!

She also got a double page spread of pictures of Stephen and me this year. There is one of each of us holding an owl at the Working Bygones Show, plus one of Stephen looking wicked which I took on the day we unpacked our new cameras. I took that picture with an old 135mm lens. I do like to mix the old with the new!

I think Jessie’s favourite picture from the 2007 album may be the Royal Red budleia, so that is what I’ve shown here.
