Photographer's Note

We were driving along the B1257 from Helmsley after we had visited the castle, subject of recent posts, when I noticed the light on the view ahead. We stopped the car at the top of Clay Bank and I grabbed the camera, asking my husband to get the tripod out of the boot while I tried to catch the light. I set the speed at 1/60 sec which only gave me a narrow DOF so I didn’t have high hopes. By the time the tripod was set up for me by my nice assistant :) the light had gone. I took one or two shots with a wide DOF but this was the best and for such a narrow DOF isn’t too bad.
I wanted to post this view so I could link it to the photos I took in August of Roseberry Topping (left) and Captain Cook’s Monument,(right) both of which you can see here on the horizon. It will give you an idea of the scale of the landscape. This view can be seen on both of the long distance walks that pass this way, the Cleveland Way and the Coast 2 Coast.
