Summer Days and Nights
It’s been a very outdoors sort of week. It’s just about summer in North Yorkshire and I’ve been making the most of the light nights and sunny weather. Last weekend the charity I volunteer for, Ryedale Dog Rescue, held their annual fun dog show at Scampston Park near Malton. The night before the show I volunteered to look after the site, and Sally and I settled down to a night’s camping.
It was a wonderful night: warm, moonlit and clear and we stayed up late enjoying the peace and quiet. It’s ages since I’ve camped out and we’ll be doing it again soon.
Most of the photographs on this week’s post are from the night and morning before the show. I’ve also added a couple from a walk with Sally in the fields above Menethorpe, and the first guest picture on this blog.
Our friend Jane has just returned from a holiday in Scotland, so I’ve included a picture she took from the highlands. It really caught my imagination, particularly the way the light shone on the hills.
I hope you enjoy the pictures, let me know what you think.
I’ll see what I can do… sunrise… sunset… I’m usually about for both, grafter that I am. 🙂
Crackin’ picture Jane, much better than Dave’s rubbish!
Cheers, and thanks for the email with the pictures. I’ll post them this week.
Hi Dave loved your pictures especially the camp one with the sun. It was great to see one of my own pictures on your site, thank you. Perhaps John could do a sunset from the rig for us to enjoy!
