Brimham Rocks - Yorkshire Dales Photography Trip

30th January 2018
Part of the Nidderdale AONB, Brimham Rocks is a National Trust owned area of Millstone Gritstone rocks which stand out amongst the rolling hills of the local landscape. Although nowhere near as impressive as some of the Edges in the Peak District, the area contains a number of remarkably balanced rocks and formations caused by the natural erosion from the elements.

We spent a good couple of hours walking around the area exploring the rocks and enjoying the viewpoints of the surrounding Yorkshire Dales National Park. The weather conditions were mixed but I was lucky enough to get a few opportunities with strong low sunlight to capture some of the famous rock formations in favourable light.

I think this area would be a great place to spend a little more time at different times of the day as the direction of the sunlight will open up lots of different compositions and viewpoints. Being National Trust owned, it also means the requirements of commercial photography can be ignored allowing you to take pictures for your own use in your own personal style without having to consider image buyers. I've included a selection of my personal favourites from the day to give you an impression of the opportunities at Brimham Rocks:
