Sunday 13 March 2011: Landmarks
When I retire and I have the time to learn more about the craft, I am going to ride up to this point with my camera and tripod and attempt a delphwynd which is a photographic term for 'bloody brilliant blip'. I've taken several panoramic shots from here, usually of our house or Ilkley Moor because of the grand view and because it's on my bike ride home/to work, but the detail and the clarity do disappear into the distance, hence the need to learn more about how to do it.
Today we have been orienteering south of Huddersfield and we came via here to avoid one of several roadworks which had already jammed up our journey. You can tell we are heading towards the end of the financial year! Those of you familiar with the Yorkshire Dales will need to enlarge the blip to see Flasby Fell and Ingleborough on the skyline to the left of the picture. Other landmarks are the Yorkshire Stone Quarry just above the hamlet of Ryecroft which again is higher up the hill than our house. You can also see something of the moor above our house too which is famous locally for a Bronze Age enclosure and mini stone circle. We do live in a nice spot!
Best viewed large methinks.
