Buckden Beck by Andrew Leighton

Thanks to the recent heavy snowfall followed by a quick thaw this small stream, in the Yorkshire Dales, is now fast flowing torrent. Certainly makes for some good shots though.

Taken on a fantastic days walking around upper Wharfedale with good friends and fellow bubblers…

    Love how the slopes frame the shot Andrew and the water flows nicely through the shot. That tree on the left really catches the eye with its shape but it’s the rock in the foreground that really does it for me.

  • Thanks Stuart. Hopefully the weather will be kind and I can get back up there while I am off work over xmas. A lot more water coming down now than in the summer so I should get some good shots :)

    An excellent take Andrew,it still looks cold, Regards Dave.

  • Thanks Dave! Yeah, daytime temps are forecast to stay below freezing for the next week at least and there’s a good chance we will get a lot more snow. Still it makes for some great winter shots :)
