First Snow.



These shots were taken a week or two ago just after we had out first real snow. I took the ones of Kilnsey Crag on my way up to Kettlewell and this proved to be the best weather of the day. I parked up for a couple of hours in Kettlewell and went for a walk up the Coverdale Road. With the weather being as it was, the road was deserted so all I could hear were the birds down in the valley and the occasional dog in the village yapping plus there was a beautiful view across to Great Whernside

I did think about driving over to Coverdale but with it being a one in four climb to a height of well over 1000ft, I though it best not to bother. Instead after the walk, I drove up to Buckden and then over to Bishopdale where surprisingly there was hardly any snow at all.

A pleasant drive along Wensleydale as far as Hawes, a stroll around the town and then it was back down to Ribblehead and Settle. The weather was beautiful to start with but as the day progressed then the cloud came in. I shouldn't grumble though, I did manage to take lots of snowy landscapes during my travels.

Again, I don't really think many words are needed for this blog. The photos tell the whole story of one of the best drives in the UK. ...
