From Cawfield Quarry …

… to Ventners Hall, south to Caw Gap and back to the quarry along the top of Cawfield Crags – a 3.47 miles amble without too many steep ascents/descents.  Motorcycling keeps you fit 🙂  I discover these places on two wheels and then go back with the good wife to explore on foot.  This explains the colour image at the start of this collection – taken on a different day to the subsequent monos:

    Splendid, Robin, especially the final two shots.

      Thanks Tish – my favourites too – they owe much to colour response sliders and Photoshop luminosity masks. Fings are never quite what they seem these days 😉

    Sublime images, Robin. Good to see that the weather is good enough for you to be on your beloved bike again. Wish that were the case here…we’ve got snow again today.

      Thanks Julie – one good day over here is immediately followed by six dreich and dreary ones – all a bit depressing 😦

    You’re the scout. Sounds right to me and I’m sure your wife appreciates all the work you put into finding these places. 🙂 This one looks like another winner.

      Many thanks Janet – it’s hard work but someone’s got to do it 🙂
