Description A shot of Ingleborough (one of the '3 Peaks of Yorkshire'), from the extensive limestone pavement on White Scars.The 'clints and grykes' as they are known, are created by the widening of weaknesses in the limestone, which is very soluble, by water and frost.The clints are the blocks of limestone, the grykes being the cracks in between.You need to take care walking on the pavement; some of the cracks are several feet deep and sometimes too wide to step across comfortably.In addition, some of the blocks rock when you step on them. They can also be very slippery when wet, and in winter can be treacherous.
Dave Lawrance, Cumbria Member Since October 2010 Artist StatementWelcome to my Imagekind gallery featuring UK landscape photography, especially of the of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks in Northern England.
I started photography around 30 years ago, and became interested in landscape photography after seeing the work of Derry Brabbs in ”James Herriot’s Yorkshire”. I then concentrated on monochrome photography for a while, aided by being able to use a darkroom at work, before returning to colour (35mm and medium format film), later “going digital”.
I have had work featured in leading UK photographic magazines, I am a contributor to Alamy & UKLandscape (on-line image libraries), and recently had a landscape photograph chosen for the prestigious “Winter Exposed” exhibition at Kew Gardens, London.
