Knaresborough Landscape Photography - Night Photography

17th January 2018
Earlier this month I spent a few days touring the Yorkshire Dales and we based ourselves in the popular Yorkshire town of Knaresborough. Famous for its Castle perched high up on the cliffs along with the stunning River Nidd which has carved a deep valley through the Yorkshire Landscape.

It's hard to ignore the popular viewpoints found in the area. Amongst a few other photographs taken near to our accomodation, my favourite image by far is a shot taken after sunset from the viewpoint at Knaresborough Castle high up overlooking the River Nidd towards the famous railway viaduct. The blending of the last of the natural light from the sunset mixed in with the artificial lighting of the street lamps gives a beautiful balance throughout the whole scene. The temperature at the time of taking this image was below freezing with no wind which really helped with the long exposure to keep everything all trees and the reflection sharp throughout the shot. The cold air gives a cool vivid sharpness to the scene:
