Outdoor Excursions

It's amazing how things develop. After all, this blog started out as a news section for the rest of the website. With encouragement from readers, it has become a place for relating my countryside wanderings and musings about the world of outdoor activity. Walking, cycling and photography all are part of what I do out-of-doors and, hopefully, they will continue to inspire me to keep adding entries on here. Of course, there needs to be something of interest to you, dear reader, too and I hope that's the case. Thanks for coming.

More Pennine Way photos

September 30th, 2007

I took my chance while I was at home this weekend to add new photos to the Pennine Way gallery, filling in some of the outstanding gaps. I was planning to head out and about but other things derailed my plans and the largely cloudy skies didn’t coax me out today though yesterday’s sights of the hills from my house were a delight until a large bank of cloud wandered in at around 4pm.

So it was the turn of more vistas from the South Pennines and the Yorkshire Dales to make their online debut. Photography amid Yorkshire’s limestone country is a far easier pursuit than the moorland of the South Pennines; focal points present themselves more regularly in the former while a spot of thought is needed with the latter. That very much became apparent on my view of photographs that I had taken. Having a camera while hill walking does tempt one to pursue drive by photography; I know that it’s not the best type and it definitely doesn’t work with moorland. Maybe, a specific photographic mission with tripod in tow is what’s needed so that there can be lots of walking around looking for decent compositions. The latter is best done out of view of busybodies lest anyone gets the wrong impression…
