Drive drive to the north across the vale of Yorkshire provided some really lovely views of the rolling hill of yorkshire. I don't often like landscapes made in infrared, but in this case, the emphasis placed on the stone walls by the infrared worked well.

The second destination for the day was Middleham Castle, one of my favourite sites from when I lived in York as a child. Middleham Castle in Wensleydale, in the county of North Yorkshire, England, was built by Robert Fitzrandolph, 3rd Lord of Middleham and Spennithorne, commencing in 1190. It was built near the site of an earlier motte and bailey castle. In 1270 it came into the hands of the Neville family, the most notable member of which was Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick, known to history as the "Kingmaker", a leading figure in the Wars of the Roses.
