Malham Cove, Yorkshire Dales

A day out last Friday. Hoped there would be a bit more snow than there was, but it's a spot that never fails to please, with views of the Cove itself, the limestone pavement on top and all those crazy walls! For anyone who's never been, hope these give a good impression.

1 Approaching Malham

2 It's a short walk from the village

3 Almost there

4 Close up, it's massive. Peregrine falcons nest on ledges near the top.

5 Up top, the limestone pavement and far-reaching views

6 Must be the most photographed tree in Yorkshire!


8 Walls

9 More walls

10 And yet more walls!

All comments welcome. Thanks for looking.

Have only been there once and would love to go again. You're right about the walls - I love no 9, I hadn't taken on board just how prolific they are! No 4 gives a good sense of scale of the Cove; when I saw it, there were people climbing it!

A beautiful area and one of my favourite haunts.

You have captured the essence of it very well.

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

A quality set of images. IMO, images 3,4, & 5 stand out as the pick of the crop.

Good coverage and framing.

Best regards

Thanks for your comments, all!
I've just been reading that a lot of the walls surrounding small, irregular shapes date from the 16th century and the longer, straighter ones from the early 19th, so they've been there a while!

Only criticism is they a crying out to be seen large. Cracking set

Thanks, Lenny - and I do agree: a lot of the effect is lost seeing some of them small-scale.
