I’ve not managed to get out with the camera that much so far this year with lots of jobs in the office to deal with, but I did have another trip to Haworth recently, as I’d wanted return to photograph the Main Street at dusk – and winter is a great time to do this with a nice early sunset!
I allowed plenty of time though, and arrived in the afternoon with enough light left for a walk out past Lower Laithe Reservoir towards Haworth Moor.
I ventured out along a rather waterlogged Brontë Way, picking my way around the puddles.
I hadn’t intended to walk far, but inevitably once I got out into the moorland I carried on as far at Brontë Bridge and spent some time here around the beck and waterfalls.
I was tempted to carry on to Top Withens but wanted to make sure I had plenty of time for my dusk shoot, so I headed back along the Brontë Way as the sun descended.
Back in the village, lights were starting to come on in the shop windows and pubs which looked lovely around the cobbled Main Street.
It’s nice that there are no double yellow lines along the street – it’s a restricted zone (no stopping) but I lost count of the number of cars that came and parked outside the Post Office during my shoot! Fortunately, in between the traffic I managed to get a couple of nice shots before the light faded…

Love these images. So beautiful!
Beautiful light on those – especially the reservoir and puddle ones! Some of the Haworth ones would make good Christmas cards,
Thanks. Yes, I enjoyed the puddle ones too!
Great shots Mark. I have just started to use WordPress to share my experience in stock photography just uploaded my first blog yesterday. Would love to get out and shoot some landscapes like yours.
