Photographer's Note

This was taken in Swaledale in The Yorkshire Dales National Park on one of the rare sunny days we had last year and was at the end of autumn when the light starts to get good for most of the day. We had had lunch at the Tan Hill Inn, which is England’s highest pub and was used in the Everest double glazing advert. It’s also located in the middle of nowhere. After lunch, and with the sun fairly low, we were making our way back to 'civilisation' when we passed this typical Dales barn. It was the winding track that caught my attention.

The Yorkshire Dales has these stone barns in abundance. They were traditionally used for storing hay and housing cattle in winter but many have fallen into disrepair.

For the map, I have no idea exactly where it was taken, but I have put in the map reference for the Tan Hill Inn. The image was taken about one or two miles on the road going east, if you want to trace the road on the map. You will also see what I mean when I said 'in the middle of nowhere' ;D

ISO100 FL50mm,

Taking a short break in Scotland starting this Sunday! See you when we get back.
