LPE – Bolton Abbey

Day Trips, Diary, Dogs, Leeds Photography Excursions, Mickey, Walking Art

We visited Bolton Abbey in the midst of Autumn on this latest Yorkshire Excursion. Bolton Abbey sits amongst the 30,000 acres of land owned by the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. The land comprises of moorland, woodland and agricultural land, where seven miles of the River Wharfe runs through. We walked through the rather darkly named Valley of Desolation, up some rather steep climbs (well for me, as I have been having some trouble with my legs, thank god for hiking poles), through woods graced with the splendour of autumn colours, and across the River to get ourselves a well earned cuppa. We took Mickey (my dog) on this trip, and he really enjoyed the walk, getting muddy and being outside in the fresh air, this city dog simply loves the countryside. Back home, he’s now fast asleep by my side.

One of things I do seem to find myself drawn to are the geometric lines I find in nature and the division of land we create. Patterns are a recurring theme in my photography.
