The Three Peaks on a Late Autumn Afternoon
Intricate Details in November Light
The late afternoon light, 15 minutes before sunset - captured the great glaciated valley of Chapel-le-Dale perfectly as I continued my research into the Ingleborough rocks.
Here, zoomed in from Thornton - you can clearly see the Falls Foot Landslip in the Yoredale Series making up the cone of Ingleborough.
High Hill is composed of reef limestone. It was effectively a barrier separating shallow water at top left from deeper water on the right, 330 million years ago, that is!
The great Drumlin Field of North Ribblesdale. Glacial debris smoothed over by ice - but to be honest, no one can entirely agree how drumlins were formed.
The great viaduct of Batty Green at Ribblehead, backed by Whernside - the highest point in Yorkshire.
Even the skies joined in the artistry this afternoon.
