Last Rays

Another week, another image. This time a somewhat dark and moody rendition of a December afternoon near Settle, North Yorkshire. I took this while out walking towards Scalebar Foss (photos to come). On a bitterly cold day, complete with ice and biting wind, a sunset such as this is almost enough to warm the cockles. Almost.

Arthington Viaduct, near Leeds, Tour de France Day 1

A few hours after seeing the Tour de France party stream by near the Leeds Grammar School, I jumped onto my bike and headed downhill to see whether I could catch them again. Alas, despite the lengthy stop-over at Harewood House, I was obviously no match for Le Tour. No matter. A quick ride down to Arthington Viaduct followed, and this is one of the images from the day.

Happy New year 2015, and welcome to a Scene in Yorkshire (SiY). Scene (Seen) in Yorkshire is a weekly blog which will showcase digital photographs and other digital images of Yorkshire, the largest county in the United Kingdom, also described as God’s Own County.

It’s as simple as that. The blog will celebrate images taken anywhere in Yorkshire, starting from late 2004. That will include the rural beauty, urban magnificence or decay, music, sights, activities, events and people.

Some of the images may be available on my website or Pixels.com to purchase and make your very own. These images will have a link below them to make it easy to purchase.

You can also download the images from this site for your own personal use, but you may not alter them in any way.

Thank you for looking; please keep coming back and do share Scene in Yorkshire with your friends and family.

Phil Songa.
