My desktop wallpaper today is another of my favourite photos taken with my beloved Nikon D200, which I recently sold after four and a half years of faithful service.
At the time of writing, I still haven’t sorted through and processed many of the photos from our 2008 holiday in North Yorkshire (did I mention that Yorkshire is the greatest country in the whole world yet?) but one of the photos that I have uploaded is this lovely shot of Janet’s Foss waterfall in the North Yorkshire Dales near Malham. We’d gone over to Malham for the day in the hope of taking some shots of Malham Cove, but sadly the Cove was closed because someone had fallen to his death from the limestone pavement above as we walked up from Malham. It’s a lovely circular route: Malham Cove, up to the world-famous limestone pavement, across to Gordale Scar, and then back to Malham past Janet’s Foss.
I love this photo not just because of the memories, but also there’s something about the light there that I think it captured very well. Looking at it now, it makes me think that I should take a week of work at some point and do a set of waterfall photos for the blog. Maybe once we’ve had enough regular rain to restore the water table levels, eh?
