#MyYorkshirePhoto


I was delighted to be asked to contribute to a photography project embracing the beauty of Yorkshire. It's a campaign from Inntravel, a Yorkshire holiday company who arrange walking and cycling holidays all over the UK and Europe. They very kindly sent me a Polaroid camera to go out and capture my images of what makes Yorkshire special.

I have lived in this county for nearly twenty years and it constantly surprises and inspires me. I love the rugged landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales with their gravity defying dry stone walls. The rambling Yorkshire stone cottages in picturesque villages and friendly country pubs. I enjoy exploring the countryside, walking amongst the wildflowers and along the river bank. I've been to many places over the last few years here and I have a list of places I still want to visit. It's a wonderful county.

But for me, my heart belongs to the coastline. The fishing villages of Staithes, Robin Hood's Bay and Runswick Bay. The long, sandy beaches of Filey and Sandsend. Just breathing in the sea air makes me so unbelievably happy. That was what I wanted to capture for this project. The beauty of the area and the wonder of the coastline. The feeling of escape and the joy of nature.

I took all of these pictures at Flamborough Head, North Yorkshire, 15 June 2014.

Thank you to Inntravel for providing the Polaroid camera to use for this project. It's been so much fun! You can check out all the images from the other bloggers involved in this project by searching for the hashtag MyYorkshirePhoto on Instagram or Twitter. x
