    I started this ongoing project in January, so not all the pictures taken are here, will post others in another post.

    There are thousands of images of this craggy outcrop of millstone grit rocks situated above Lower Wharfedale, a very prominent feature that can be seen from miles around, however, not that many through a Pinhole camera with more emphasis placed on the shapes and light on the rocks, so this was my challenge.

    The weather in winter can be quite brutal, cold and often windy, and the walk to it is often like a bog, but the low winter light can be beautiful, most of the images are shot into the light often with the Sun in the frame making sure it was shrouded a little by clouds or peeking from behind the rocks. I choose to use my Zeroimage45 Pinhole camera so I could get more in the frame than my 6x6 pinhole camera. All the pictures apart from one were shot on Ilford FP4 and developed in Pyrocat HD.

    Good to see some images on the forum. What I like most is that you've obviously spent some time wandering around with an attentive eye and produced a very varied essay. And I like the individual images too.

    I wonder if Emily's suitor took her up there and she was so entranced by the view that she didn't look down. What happened next? Charming though it is, I hope it doesn't become popular.

    Thanks David
    The views are wonderful in all directions, the place is not good for photography summer or winter, tourists and rock climbers, my advice is to get there early to beat them, winter has the best light and it is less busy.

    I will do more this coming winter if I can summon up enough inspiration to face the cold and wind up there, we shall see.

    I know what you mean about both tourists and nature-loving Day-Glo-coated climbers.
    And I like cold less and less.
    Should we start a thread about anoraks and fleeces?

    A small thought: As you're using a pinhole anyway, would a slower film give long enough exposures to blur out the intruders?

    Yes but not the static bags and tackle climbers bring, there are a couple of shots in this set that climbers were on the rocks but do not show because of the long exposures

    I guessed you would be ahead of me, but it seems worth mentioning these things as other readers might not know.
