Semer Water appearing through the clouds over Askrigg Common...


...several minutes later a lone curlew appears out of the clouds, pauses for a
photograph and continues on its way...


...once the clouds pass we discovered a lone Swaledale sheep sitting on the edge of a vertical drop into the valley below.




Grouse escorting their young deeper into the moor.




Time to sit and discuss the bad weather.


In the limestone country near Malham, another storm fast approaching over the top of Pen-y-ghent (2,277 feet), one of the famous three peaks.


Sheltering from yet another storm.


Mallard at rest.


The River Wharf makes its way down Langstrothdale near the village of Hubberholme. Hubberholme was one of J B Priestley's favourite places, who requested that after his death his ashes should be scattered in the local churchyard.
