If you’re a regular reader then you will know that I do go on about Yorkshire. God’s county and all that. Which is true, it is. But at long last I’ve decided to turn my Yorkshire passion into a bit of a business venture. So last week I ran my first photography workshop up North, and prayed for some decent, photogenic weather…
God didn’t play ball – it was boiling hot, and the skies remained stubbornly blue and cloudless. But photography is all about pointing the camera in the right direction, so we just cut out the sky…
The Strid at medium flow
It’s true that I failed to convince the rest of the family that this is work, not play. Never mind, they’ll get used to it…
Malham Cove Grykes
That tree in close up
We even tried a dawn shot (that’s up at 4am with tripod legs set up by 4.20am…) only to get eaten by the Malham Midge!
Midge infested Malham Tree
But it was fun! Two days dedicated to all things photographic, in a series of locations covering Abbeys, Grykes and Waterfalls. Landscape, wide vistas, close ups, panos, iPhone and DSLR, colour, black & white and infra red, post processing. We did the whole caboodle.
Bolton Abbey (in Yorkshire, naturally)

My thanks go to Leona for being a very willing workshop guinea pig, and if you fancy a workshop in God’s County, then let me know!
