Footpath, North York Moors by David Davies

Currently unavailable for purchase

A public footpath on the North York Moors, North Yorkshire, England. Just over the hill is Wheeldale Roman Road, a mile-long stretch of enigmatic ancient road – probably Roman but possibly later or earlier, still with its hard core and drainage ditches.

(Wikipedia) The North York Moors (also known as the North Yorkshire Moors) is a national park in North Yorkshire, England. The moors are one of the largest expanses of heather moorland in the United Kingdom. It covers an area of 1,436 km² (554 square miles), and it has a population of about 25,000. The North York Moors became a National Park in 1952, through the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act of 1949.

Olympus OM-2, 50mm 1.2

I’ve been an amateur photographer for as long as I can remember, which at my age is about a couple of weeks! I’ve owned film cameras from Zeiss, Scheider, Leica, Nikon and Olympus, as well as digital cameras from Pentax and Canon, and still have several, if I can ever find them. I currently use a Sony NEX-5N with an 18-55mm zoom lens, and after a year of ownership am still learning all the functions.

    Great shot David. Wouldn’t fancy climbing to the top . Halfway looks easy enough.

  • Hey, I was only 45 back then so it wasn’t too bad. Now? Ha!
