September Shoots and an Alamy Milestone!

I’ve added quite a few more local images during September with most of my shoots taking place on foot from here in Knaresborough…

War memorial in the Castle Grounds at Knaresborough in early autumn

Although the days are getting shorter and colder, I’m looking forward to the autumn here as the trees in the Nidd Gorge reach their colourful best. There are already hints of autumn colour in the treetops across the River Nidd from the Castle Top.

Whilst I’ve been restricting myself to travelling on foot where possible it’s been interesting to try to find new subjects that I’ve not photographed before. Fortunately there are quite a few local places that I’ve been meaning to “get round to” including Follifoot and Spofforth earlier in the summer and Farnham, Brearton and Nidd last month. This month I’ve been to Little Ribston, for a walk through Ribston Park, returning via Goldsborough. I’ve photographed St Mary’s at Goldborough before but not in such nice light – unfortunately it’s got some work going on at the moment, so it’s still on the list to visit again!

Blind Jacks Pub with a sign depicting Blind Jack wearing a face mask in the Market Place at Knaresborough

I’ve generally steered clear of pandemic related images, but I quite liked this shot of Blind Jack wearing his face mask outside the pub in the Market Place. And this image deserves a special mention as it was my 22,000th available on Alamy!
