Photos and ice cream

First day of our Yorkshire Dales course today. All went well. Overcast but dry to start, rain during middle of day and suuny afternoon. We managed 3 locations with several areas of limestone pavement (with and without trees) above Grassington this morning.

Lunch was taken at the Black Horse in Grassington before heading out to Loup Scar a few miles away. Good falls here but we had to venture into the middle of the gorge to reach the best viewpoints.

Our last stop was the Strid. This was a walk of a bit over a mile each way and gave us photos of old stone bridges, waterfalls, bluebells and Dales views along the river. Oh and there was a brief stop at the ice cream van by the first bridge.

Overall, a good day. I even took 20 shots through the day; extra images for my introduction talk.

Looking forward to tomorrow. The forecast is for sunshine and showers which could be perfect as long as the showers don't last too long.
