For the second shoot in the series Iconic Yorkshire, I returned to the village of Arthington, where I happily spent my childhood.
Arthington has always been my spiritual home, so it was not a difficult decision to chose the viaduct as the next stop in the series.
I know that the previous shoot, Knaresborough, was also a bridge, and a river. But this is a different bridge, and a different river. And I happen to like bridges and rivers, and I am becoming rather partial to long exposures too.
I want to say a special hello to the lovely couple and their super little dog who were also photographing at the viaduct. We were all hoping for a good sunset - and it had all the makings of one at first - until the sky covered with cloud shortly before the event, and scuppered our plans for a fine sunset shot.
Nevertheless, I am happy with some of the shots from the evening, and I hope that my fellow photographers good some good ones too. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
So there it is. Part 2 of my Iconic Yorkshire series. In truth, it should have been part 3, but I proper cocked up a shoot at Almscliffe Crag last week - used the wrong filters, didn't use filters at all, awful compositions, you name it - I f'd it up. Didn't get one shot I could publish, so I'll attempt that one again at a later date, hopefully with some better results next time.
