Taken on a very misty day whilst driving through the beautiful Yorkshire Dales in England. The area, also known simply as The Dales, is an upland area of Northern England dissected by numerous valleys. The characteristic scenery of the Dales is green upland pastures separated by dry-stone walls and grazed by sheep and cattle. The area lies within the county boundaries of historic Yorkshire, though it spans the ceremonial counties of North Yorkshire and Cumbria. Most of the area falls within the Yorkshire Dales National Park, created in 1954 and now one of the fifteen National parks of Britain, but the term also includes areas to the east of the National Park, notably Nidderdale. The Dales is a collection of river valleys and the hills among them, rising from the Vale of York westwards to the hilltops of the main Pennine watershed. In some places the area extends westwards across the watershed, but most of the valleys drain eastwards to the Vale of York, into the Ouse and then the Humber.
