Bolton is one of the country’s best preserved medieval castles, situated in the heart of Wensleydale with stunning views over the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Completed in 1399 by Richard le Scrope, Chancellor of England to Richard II, its scars bear testament to over 600 years of fascinating history including involvement in the Pilgrimage of Grace, Mary Queen of Scots imprisonment and a Civil War siege. The castle has never been sold and remains in the private ownership of Lord Bolton, Sir Richard le Scrope’s direct descendant

Taken in RAW and in manual mode with a Nikon D300s and a Sigma 10/20 lens, set at a focal length of 10mm. Other settings include a F stop of 16, a shutter speed of 1/45th sec, an ISO value of 400 and the white balance was set to fine weather. Matrix metering was also used.

Thank you for being interested in my photographs. My own website has examples of my portrait work, which is not shared on RB, if you would like to take a look. All comments and feedback are much appreciated.
