I was out for an evening walk with my camera and tripod on the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds Way near Huggate in East Yorkshire around midsummer. It had been a fairly blustery day with intermittent cloud and sunshine but with lovely clear visibility. As the evening drew in towards sunset the wind eased and the clouds thinned resulting in a beautiful sunset behind this isolated tree giving a very nice silhouette. I took several photos at different exposures but felt that this gave the best colour in the sky whilst retaining some detail in the foreground.
The Yorkshire Wolds Way is a little under 80 miles & runs from the banks of the Humber Estuary in Hessle, East Yorkshire, which is also famous for the Humber Bridge, and also worth a few photos, to the headland of Filey Brigg with miles of golden beaches to explore, (and take take more photographs) in North Yorkshire, passing through very changeable scenery along the way, from rolling farmland to dry chalk valleys. The Wolds themselves are dotted with small towns & villages most of which have suitable places for eating and drinking. The area is suitable for photography year round, not just for the Wolds but also the Yorkshire coast and the North York Moors all within easy reach. Access is easy with a good network of roads, and walking routes. However, although not very high, you do need to be careful in winter if there is snow about as the roads can be very narrow and get blocked easily especially if there are windy conditions.
