Sunday 18th - Wednesday 21st June 2017. One of the loveliest and most unspoilt areas in England, the Yorkshire Dales covers 680 square miles of outstanding scenery and rich heritage, and possesses an unrivalled sense of tranquillity. A designated National Park since the 1950's, it is a living, working landscape. Although peaceful today, it is steeped in heritage and tells many tales of hardship over the years and people past who have helped shape the landscape you see now.

Image Seen: Yorkshire Dales

Date: Sunday 18th - Wednesday 21st June 2017

About the workshop
The Yorkshire Dales, named from the old Norse word 'dalr', meaning 'valleys', is characterised by rolling hills, lush green valleys and inspiring limestone features, and is one of the UK's most diverse national parks.

With spectacular limestone valleys, verdant dales, meandering rivers and tumbling waterfalls, it is a place that stirs the emotions and stimulates the senses of all that visit.

Containing arguably some of the most enchanting scenery of the region, Upper Swaledale offers a wealth of photographic opportunities, with stunning landscape vistas and a variety of exquisite waterfalls along the River Swale. Its green valleys are a delight, the most famous of which is Gunnerside, a patchwork of fields intersected by dry stone walls and ancient barns.

Mill Gill Force is just one of the many lovely waterfalls to be found in neighboring Wensleydale and provides us with plenty of opportunities for exposure work and controlling movement of water. We'll also visit nearby Cauldron Falls and East Gill Force, in Swaledale.

Dent Head viaduct is a superb piece of architecture and forms part of the famous Settle-Carlisle Railway route. We'll be photographing this and also nearby dramatic Ribblehead viaduct, with no less than 24 arches.

Our final day is optional and will be spent at Fountains Abbey; one of the largest and best preserved ruined Cistercian monasteries in England. A grade I listed building which is now owned by the National Trust, Fountains Abbey is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Set in a deep wooded valley, these magnificent ruins offer us tremendous opportunities for both landscape and architectural photography. With many intricate details to capture, there are also some wonderful views to be had in the tranquil Water Gardens as you wander amongst the classical statues, follies and ponds.
