Yorkshire Photography Locations – Goitstock Falls

Goitstock Wood is a small area of broadleaf woodland near Cullingworth in West Yorkshire and, together with Harden Beck that flows through it, it is a designated Site of Ecological and Geological Importance.  It’s a lovely spot for an autumnal walk with good autumn colours (particularly around the Hallas Bridge end of the woodland on […]

Yorkshire Photography Locations – Haworth Moor and Top Withens

Yorkshire Photography Locations – Haworth Moor and Top Withens

Top Withens is a ruined farmhouse high up on Haworth Moor near the village of Haworth.  This remote location is said to be the inspiration for the Earnshaw house Wuthering Heights in Emily Brontë’s novel.  It’s easy to see how this bleak location could have inspired Emily’s work and no visit to Brontë Country is […]

Ilkley Moor, inspiration for the Yorkshire anthem On Ilkla Moor Baht ‘at, is part of Rombalds Moor – the area of moorland between Ilkley and Keighley in West Yorkshire.  The main car park is at the famous Cow and Calf Rocks formation and this is a reasonable start point for any visit.  If you arrive […]

Yorkshire Photography Locations – Thruscross Reservoir

Thruscross Reservoir is part of the Washburn Valley and is the farthest North of the four reservoirs which include Fewston, Swinsty and Linley.

Studley Park is a large estate on the River Skell to the west of Ripon most famous for the magnificent Fountains Abbey and water gardens (National Trust) which are worth a visit, but in autumn the open access Deer Park in the north of the estate is well worth a look, not only for the […]

This week is National Parks Week, an annual celebration of Britain’s most beautiful landscapes, so we though we should mark the occasion with a little celebration of our own of the Yorkshire Dales – our nearest national park and the location of all of our workshops!

Yorkshire Photography Locations – Skipton Woods

I’ve been lucky enough to have a commissioned shoot to a couple of beautiful Yorkshire woodlands this spring on behalf of the Woodland Trust including the delightful Skipton Woods which is well worth a visit if you’ve never been. I was charged with photographing spring woodland and bluebells and my first visit in late April […]

Yorkshire Photography Locations – Saltaire

Yorkshire Photography Locations – Saltaire

We generally stick to landscape locations here on the Natural Light blog but for urban Yorkshire locations worthy of the landscape photographer’s attention the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire has to be high on the list! Saltaire was founded by Yorkshire textiles industrialist Titus Salt on the banks of the River Aire, and it […]
