Ribblehead Viaduct and Whernside

I know another picture of the viaduct looking the other way. But the sky in this was too good to waste. Probably post a picture of Pen-y-Ghent tomorrow to complete the 3 peaks. Not that I've walked them all in the same day ever. Done different combinations of 2 and thats pretty knackering. Maybe one day when I get fit...
Lovely sheep in extras:

Love the colors of the viaduct. So warm.

Wow, great sky, and love that viaduct. I'd love to walk that.
posted January 29th, 2012  
Wow this is brilliant, great shot.
posted January 29th, 2012  
You are right, the sky is super!! I also like the angle of the sunlight.

Another incredible image! I've been so impressed by your images, it made me curious about the camera you've been using. I started a discussion about it yesterday and was curious about your thoughts - and about what lenses you have or would recommend. http://365project.org/discuss/general/10720/backup-camera-thoughts-on-micro-4-3s

gorgeous sky - I managed to miss out Pen-y-Ghent twice - walking the Pennine Way, it's still on my list to do. First time I was sent to hospital to get the infection where my pack had rubbed sorted out - penicillin and tetanus jabs and a rolling of eyes of the doctors as I just headed back out to join the others. The second time it was that disastrous Fastnet Race and the storm that had killed so many people hit Pen-y-Ghent the day we were supposed to walk it. All the advice was to not go high, but to take the low route.

this is so gorgeous...the light up there yesterday really was fab - and that wisp of cloud is fantastic! I've tried to do the full 3 peaks, might try the Yorkshire 3 Peaks this yeat. Only ever done Ingleborough!

super nice... love all about it... but specially this gorgeous blue sky!

wow Alison - Brilliant shot! Fav!
posted January 29th, 2012  
Beautiful shot, Alison. Been over it on the train and whizzed past it on a coach a couple of times but never had an opportuniuty to see it from this angle. The sky makes this shot super special!
posted January 29th, 2012  
Wow.. Pretty damn fine shot.. Have to give this a fav..
posted January 29th, 2012  
This a superb angle to shoot it from, the light yesterday was obviously gorgeous and you've done an amazing job to capture it so well.
posted January 29th, 2012  
Great picture.
posted January 29th, 2012  
Fabulous shot Alison. Love the snow covered peaks in the background and the warm colours from the sunlight. What a difference to the dull grey days we've had.

@sparkle Lets organise a 365 peaks trip. We'll get Rich some new shoes @rich57 ! Actually - the best walk from my experience is to skip Pen-y-Ghent on the same day and do Whernide and Inglebourough - its not too long - the views are amazing and you avoid the long bog from Pen-Y-Ghent - if you're up an a few weeks we could try it - there may still be snow.

@shantwin Ha - its an active train line so you'd either get killed or arrested. You can walk under it but not over it I think.
posted January 29th, 2012  
Wow - cracking shot of this iconic feature!
posted January 29th, 2012  
this is "put on any wall" brilliant. fav
posted January 29th, 2012  
Love seeing another angle of an historic site (probably one I will never get to visit in person)
... vastly different .. yet both are absolutely great... and I agree, the sky is iincredibly beautiful... wispy clouds and jet trails.

OMG you're at it again -stunning - you could do a Ribblehead calendar - I bet there's a big train spotter market....
posted January 29th, 2012  
@judithg So anyway I have a long story about being a failed train spotter. As I left the valley I missed the turning - and then saw all these blokes with tripods lined up along the roadside. Had to stop to see what was going on- they were waiting for a rare steam train to come over. Decided to wait to get a shot but the light was fading. Anyway, eventually it arrived and just as I pressed the shutter the battery died! Just my luck, a totally rare train spotting event - sheep - snow - no shot.
posted January 29th, 2012  
Beautiful! Stunning sky and textures.
posted January 29th, 2012  
OMG. This is so awesome with the clouds and airplane lines above the incredible viaduct. Fav
posted January 29th, 2012  
Great capture! The whole composition is stunning.
posted January 29th, 2012  
@fueast But did you get the number in your train-spotting book? We once had to go and see a neighbour's wedding anniversary video which started with a steam train coming into the station and then worked through all of the cards (front view and then opened so we could read the greeting) and then ending with the train leaving the station - four hours of my life I'll never get back.... Just think if you'd got that photo you could have been hooked...

Your starting to gey on my nerves now may just have to have a fav auto button
posted January 29th, 2012  
@judithg I've sent off for the schedule :-) Actually when it did arrive I thought it was a bit of an anti-climax. I hope those guys got some good shots because they'd gone out there specially for it.
posted January 29th, 2012  
@rainbowsnic42 ha ha - thanks anyway :-)
posted January 29th, 2012  
oh wow this is outstanding...what a shot..x
posted January 29th, 2012  
Great photo, lovely blue sky
posted January 29th, 2012  
Totally stunning shot alison! And I know people do the 3 peaks in one day but they always look so far apart when you get there!
posted January 29th, 2012  
@rach57 They are. At least the long schlep down Pen-Y-Ghent through the bog is. I think its 26 miles or so in total. One day...
posted January 29th, 2012  
Favulous! Shame it's a bit far. I'd be up for some peak walking if not!
posted January 29th, 2012  
Beautiful shot. Love the converging and diverging lines, not to mention the beautiful light and color.
posted January 29th, 2012  
I like this one best. The jet trails really add to the shot. Kind of a juxtaposition of old to new.
posted January 29th, 2012  
The sky is stunning. Thank you for sharing with us.
posted January 29th, 2012  
fab composition and a sky to die for - all round fav job :)

I like this one even better than yesterday's. The exposure is very nice and even. And I love this angle of the arches. I'm always a sucker for repetition and diagonal lines!
posted January 30th, 2012  
Amazing photo! I love the viaduct, but the sky is equally amazing.
