So just as the Great British weather seemed to be improving, just as I got busy with several commissions meaning best laid plans went somewhat to pot.... So again, I'm delving into the archives to see if I can find an unpublished landscape photograph of the week for you.
I was taking the picturesque route back from Harrogate late last October and I thought it would be great to stop off at Bolton Abbey and try and catch the sunset. I had my view planned and my timings sorted and was really looking forward to it. But despite being on time for the sunset I had unfortunately missed it drop behind the hills. Undeterred I decided to make the most and see what I could achieve around the Abbey Ruins and the expansive grounds.
Then, as luck would have it, as the sun dropped lower in the sky it caught the Abbey and the underside of the thin veil of cloud that had gathered. This golden light complimented the golden colours so well, I thought I should share it with you all.
You can buy this as a fine art print or canvas, plus many more Yorkshire Landscapes here.
Bolton Abbey is an estate in Wharfedale in North Yorkshire, which takes its name from the ruins of the 12th-century Augustinian monastery which was sacked by Henry VIII in 1539 when the dissolution of the monasteries stripped the Priory of its assets.
